On Monday September 28, while other BLS members were attending the lecture by Mme Léglu 'The University of Luxembourg and its future plans', eight courageous members of the BLS English Literature class attended an excellent but very rainy performance of TNT theatre Britain’s production of Othello at Beaufort Castle.
Directed by Paul Stebbings
Musical score by Thomas Johnson
Producer Grantly Marshall
OTHELLO is Shakespeare’s most perfect play, a masterpiece of dramatic construction. OTHELLO is a thriller, a love story, a tragedy and an exploration of race, prejudice, power, war and human folly. OTHELLO was written by Shakespeare at the height of his powers, its poetry is finer than HAMLET, its psychology deeper than MACBETH, its love story more compelling than ROMEO AND JULIET, its heartbreaking tragedy more moving than KING LEAR. OTHELLO might be the finest play ever written.
The organisers generously gave us cups of delicious sausage soup which helped enormously
At the end, the actors applauded the audience for staying on in spite of the rain!
