This is a brilliant film about race in the performance history of Othello. I can say that because I didn’t produce it, hats off to Sita Thomas.
This film looks at the four productions of Othello staged at the National Theatre and how the representation of the character’s race has changed.
Featured in this film: Professor Tony Howard, Adrian Lester and Professor Carol Chillington Rutter

This is short film called ‘Positioning The Shed’, that I produced about the temporary theatre The Shed that is currently sitting outside the National Theatre. It contains lots of really interesting information about the relevance of location in the construction of meaning, architectural information and aspirations of the space. It’s very interesting for those interested in theatres and features the rather lovely Michael Mckinnie - head of drama at Queen Mary University. Take a look.
A great introduction to Greek Comedy to finish the collection that we’ve produced for teachers and students exploring Greek Drama. I hope you like it.
