TMA AWARD FOR THEATRE ROYAL CO PRODUCTION
Frantic Assembly’s Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett have been awarded this year’s TMA Award for Best Director for Othello, their co production with the Theatre Royal, in collaboration with Royal and Derngate Northampton.
Frantic Assembly’s electrifying take on Othello, one of the most emotional of Shakespeare’s great masterpieces, had its world premiere at the Theatre Royal in September 2008 before embarking on a nationwide tour.
The play marked Frantic Assembly’s debut on the Theatre Royal stage following previous sell-out runs in the Drum Theatre with Peepshow, pool (no water) and most recently Stockholm.
The TMA Awards, established in 1991, are presented annually by the Theatrical Management Association in recognition of creative excellence and outstanding work in United Kingdom theatres.
