‘Othello’ with a Japanese setting 

delights audiences in Guildford

Wavell’s second company of actors performed at GLive on the 6th& 7th of October. The performance created quite a stir as we set the play in 17th century Japan with full Japanese costume, wigs and make-up. Miss McKie and Mrs Reeves applied the make-up and wigs on both nights working really hard to make sure the cast were ready in time. Thank you ladies!

The performances were of a really high quality and were very well received – ‘A feast for the eyes’. ‘Beautiful, we loved it.’ 

This play also had help from Mr Greaves and his wife who were our advisors on Japanese protocol. Mrs Greaves also created the brilliant Kanji calligraphy for the company’s ‘t shirts’. It translates to ‘Othello’.


The cast were also filmed for That's Surrey TV.
