Anna and I had booked tickets to see Rory Kinnear do Othello, or as we call the play "Iago" as soon as they were released. We are huge Rory fans. Rory did not disappoint, without him that play was just another Othello, same as always. I can see how people would be impressed with the sets and staging but really it wasn't bold or edgy, it looked good but really it was very traditional, Nick Hytner doesn't take risks anymore, I'm glad he's stepping down as artistic director. The play was good and everyone was good and Rory of course was magnificently horrid but the play we saw the second day put how just average it was into perspective.
