 Auditorium with stalls and two horseshoe balconies, with a first floor box on both sides.

 Inspired by Commedia dell’arte and Hamlet’s mirror, a new safety curtain is the “Separator Painted”!

 Errol Flynn trained here at the Northampton Repertory in 1933-4, appearing in 22 plays that included Othello. He was inevitably fired for throwing a female stage manager down a stairwell! After stints in other theatres, Hollywood’s Warner Brothers signed him in 1935.

 Othello telling his life story to Desdemona and her father Brabantio in Venice. Artist anon.

 Ornately restored by Osborne Robinson in 1960 who painted this.
