Devised by Kindle Theatre and the Acting Company

Please read before booking - important casting/booking info below.

Delving into a classic story of love, sex, betrayal and jealousy, Trust Not Your Daughters' Minds takes inspiration from Shakespeare’s Othello and Paula Vogel’s play Desdemona: A Play About a Handkerchief. Devised by the ensemble in collaboration with Kindle Theatre this production investigates the role of women in Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, examining their virtues and vices through music, sound and the voice.
