From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Peter Cotes (19 March 1912 – 10 November 1998) was an English director, producer, actor, writer and production manager.[1]

Cotes was born as Sydney Boulting[2] in Maidenhead, Berkshire.[3] His twin brothers John and Roy Boulting became noted film makers.[2] He began as an actor, before concentrating on theatre production.[4] He was the original director of the world's longest-running production The Mousetrap, still playing at the St Martins Theatre, London.[5] He wrote several books, including an acclaimed biography of Charlie Chaplin in 1951.[4]

He was twice married: Myfanwy Jones (marriage annulled) and Joan Miller (widowed 1988).[5] He died from natural causes in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, aged 86.[4]
