"All four actors were adept at physical, slapstick comedy, which had the audience laughing out loud, especially the kids. The intimate nature of the setting pulled us in; being able to see the actors’ facial expressions added to the experience."

"This Othello isn’t just a final box to be checked off, but an invigorating, exciting take on the revenge drama."
