London Day Trip - Othello at the National

A lovely day trip to London to see the rather brilliant Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear in Othello.

We were in London by 10am, and wandered from Charing Cross to Westminster,
via Changing the Guards at Horse Guards.

Then it was a stroll back along the embankment and across the river to the South Bank Centre, and a lovely lunch at Strada.

Of course Othello was amazing -
 (we realised that it had been nearly 20 years since we were last in the Olivier Theatre)

We were so pleased that we got to see this play live -
usually we end up seeing NT productions at the cinema -
the energy was enthralling -
and seeing two great actors at each others throats was very special indeed.
