'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.'
