OTHELLO Shakespeare's Globe Reviews

Sheila has opened in OTHELLO.

The play will run at Shakespeare's Globe until 13th October.

★ ★ ★ ★ - As Emilia Sheila Atim continues to be an extraordinarily captivating actor. - The Stage

★ ★ ★ ★ - Sheila Atim’s excellent Emilia holds the stage as, with fierce, furious honesty, she exposes the truth.​ - Financial Times

 

★ ★ ★ ★ - And incandescent rising star Sheila Atim - fresh from winning an Olivier for her turn in ‘Girl from the North Country’ - plays Iago’s wife - Time Out

 

'Atim produce a performance that develops into one of subtlety and real sad power is an indication of just how good an actor she is.' - WhatsOnStage


'The most transfixing performance comes from Sheila Atim as Iago’s wife Emilia'. - Evening Standard

 

'Sheila Atim portrays her [Emilia] with an independent spirit that chimes well with her later scenes, where Emilia gets the chance to talk a lot more - her true, free-speaking nature is there from the off, even if it begins with deeds and ends with words' Broadway World

'Jago’s wife Emilia is served better, however, thanks to the glorious Sheila Atim. Alongside Rylance, the actress gives the least self-consciously Shakespearean performance, transcending the surroundings to create a character of great wit, honesty and believability. Atim deserves to have a go at one of Shakespeare’s lead roles in a more ambitious production. Her gorgeous voice even gets an outing, in a show-closing song and dance that might well be the night’s best bit.'
