Chris Scott

"An excellent production"
Review from Derby Evening Telegraph

Chris Scott's 2010 production of Shakespeare dark tale of passion, jealousy and betrayal was a seething, sensuous and exotic mix of intense performances, gripping action and perfectly balanced tension.

Complete with a masquerade ball, bawdy belly-dancing and dramatic fight scenes the show certainly provided much spectacle alongside the brooding, simmering atmosphere generated by the central performances.

Packed houses meant we even had to add a matinee showing at short notice to meet the demand to see this fantastic production!
