Audiences have also left us their feedback and we’ve collected some below:
“We came to see Othello last night with a large group of 6th Form students. We were utterly amazed! The production is faultless: dynamic, modern, respectful of the language and crystal clear. The students were buzzing after the performance, it absolutely unlocked sections of the language and the performances were unanimously fantastic.” Teacher, Clifton High School
“This performance was my first time seeing Othello, and I was totally blown away. The audience reflected the accessibility of Twyman’s production – a range of ages, but all were captivated throughout…Fresh, unaffected performances brought to life Shakespeare’s genius: a play which was piercingly topical yet…as profoundly timeless as it was when it was first performed” Annabelle Brand, Student at Redmaids’ High School
“We all thought it was absolutely fabulous. My boys are not “into” theatre at all…but they were gripped by the performance” Audience member, 17 February
“It was fantastic! All the cast were brilliant, best set of outstanding leads I have seen in many years” Audience member, 23 February
“It was absolutely brilliant” Audience member, 01 March

Enjoyed brilliant, raw production of Othello at @tftheatres last night. Abraham Popoola was immense as Othello: proud, brooding, hurt pic.twitter.com/NxzvzS9WM0
