FringeReview UK 2018
A swift and telling production that’s quick-swerving on its feet with memorable vocal projection and physical acting that’s a delight and enticement. This outstanding outdoor version feels special.
This is a necessary, thrilling play, its energy and message spill straight into the audience.
A ringing, tolling end to a pioneering season. This play must have a life – and already possesses a miraculous importunity.
Together with several definitive and newly-founded interpretations, it’s Hytner’s lithe political thriller that emerges by contrast as a physical assault on the senses. From out of the smoke and flashes of this outstanding production, there’s jumpings-on and off as participants run up from all sides and even jostle people out of the way.
Othello will never quite seem the same again; that’s an achievement and a marker.
This is a light-footed, thump-fisted, limp-wristed and eye-poppingly uproarious production.
Identity Theatre Company’s Blue Remembered Hills was a stand-out last year. Directed by Nettie Sheridan and Gary Cook, this is too: strongly-conceived and mostly well-acted with stand-outs: don’t miss it.
