Othello in Dubai Wins Time Out Award 2019

We are excited to announce that Richard Twyman’s pioneering production of Othello won Time Out Dubai’s 2019 Best Theatrical Performance Award for its  run at the Dubai Opera House.

The 2019 production of Othello was the first time the Opera House presented a piece of drama, and we played to an audience of over 9000 people across its week of performances.

We were re-joined by the majority of the UK tour company, with some new additions including Michael Gould as Iago and Katy Stephens as Emilia.

Richard Twyman’s vital production of Othello was brought to the stage by UK Theatre Award-winners ETT in a co-production with Oxford Playhouse and Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory. To find out more about the critically acclaimed UK tour, London run, and international tour, check out Productions.

‘thriller focuses on anti-Muslim prejudice and 'alternative facts' [...] Director Richard Twyman’s riveting production excels at depicting the racial and religious tensions underlying Othello and Desdemona’s peril’ The Guardian
‘a blast of fresh air’ The Times
