Performed for the first time at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, with its racing concentrated plot and intense dramatic detail, Othello is one of Shakespeare’s most exciting, atmospheric and heartbreaking plays. This is a tale of uncontrollable jealousy, deception and murder driven by one of theatre’s greatest villains. One of Shakespeare’s greatest imaginative achievements.
'Full of pace and energy... Eamonn Walker brings to Othello dignity, grace and a fine sense of the contradiction that leads Othello to lament "the pity of it" even as he prepares to murder Desdemona' The Guardian
'Walker cuts a charismatic and brooding figure. He charts the hero's descent into murderous jealousy with a vivid physicality... Zoe Tapper (Desdemona) is enchanting' The Independent
'The seriously disturbed side of Tim McInnerny's Iago is riveting, with his pushiness morphing, in soliloquies, into a manic fury' The Independent on Sunday
'The play suits the Globe better than any I've seen' Time Out
'Desdemona is perfection - the best I have ever seen.. Tim McInnerny has been brilliantly cast as Iago.’ Observer
