“So often in Shakespeare plays and so often in the world, it’s the female voice standing up to power that actually changes things.”
Richard Twyman, director of English Touring Theatre’s contemporary production of Othello, affirms the importance of the female roles in Shakespeare’s tragedy.
Twyman highlights the tensions between the men and women in the play, exploring the brutal impact of the patriarchy on the female characters, and elaborates on his decision to develop the relationship between Desdemona and Emilia, with particular reference to Act 4, Scene 3.
