Reviews

  • Four stars

    The Guardian

    “[Richard Twyman’s] marvellous production of Othello [is] one of the best I have seen of this hard-to-love play…Spare but incisive. Cutting to the quick. It does not impose: it unlocks.”
  • Four stars

    The Stage

    “While this interpretation effectively intensifies the contemporary political resonance of prejudice directed against Othello, Victor Oshin’s performance as Othello turns inwards to suggest a character at war with himself.”
