As I write this, I genuinely struggle to know what to say. It's a good play, the cast are good, both Adrian Lester (Othello) and Rory Kinnear (Iago) fill their roles well, but something is missing - I'm really not sure what, the overall performance just doesn't pick you up and drag you towards its bloody conclusion as it should. What should be a rollercoaster of passion, jealousy and bloody madness turns out to be more of a lack lustre stroll through a bit of Shakespeare I once knew.
Should have loved it, wanted to love it, but in the end just couldn’t love it.
