Directed by Suba Das, former Resident Director at the National Theatre Studio, this bold reimagining of Shakespeare's tale of jealousy, obsession and sex draws on Grand Guignol, Kubrick, and the uniquely disturbing quality of London's most fascinating archaeological space, to create a site-speci...fic period horror.

LAMDA graduate Nana Amoo-Gottfried makes his London fringe debut as Othello.

Cary Crankson (RADA) plays Iago. 'I have a strong hunch that we will be hearing a good deal more of Crankson, who plays the troubled hero with real star quality.' (Charles Spencer, The Telegraph on Cary Crankson in Flight Path)

International Emmy Award nominee Ruth Pickett makes her London fringe debut as Desdemona. 'A newcomer with a future, a sweet, sparkly performer… if the two Vics, Wood and Reeves, had a daughter, then Pickett is what she'd be like'. (Independent On Sunday)

What the industry say about Custom/Practice:

"This is an historic achievement" (Jatinder Verma, Artistic Director, Tara Arts on 'Macbeth')
