I’m absolutely delighted to be returning to New Zealand in January to direct Othello for the second season at Auckland’s brilliant Pop-up Globe. I’ll be working again with composer Paul McLaney and costume designer Chantelle Gerrard, both of whom I worked with on Romeo and Juliet at PUG last year (Chantelle also designed costumes for Mary Stuart at Central this summer).
The season will feature two in-house acting companies. For the Queen’s Company, Othello will play in rep with Much Ado About Nothing directed by Miriama McDowell, who appeared as Lady Capulet in Romeo and Juliet last year. Meanwhile the King’s Company will perform Henry V and As You Like It, directed by artistic director Miles Gregory and Tom Mallaburn respectively.
