In 1986, Pennington and director Michael Bogdanov together founded the English Shakespeare Company.

He is the author of the book Are You There, Crocodile?

In April 2004 he became the second actor, after Harley Granville-Barker in 1925, to deliver the British Academy's annual Shakespeare lecture. The lecture was entitled Barnadine's Straw: The Devil in Shakespeare's Detail.
