In 2008, actor Darren Raymond became Artistic Director of Intermission Youth Theatre. It couldn’t have come at a better time for Darren who had recently finished a run of Othello.
He took charge with just four young people in that first season. Since that day, more than 100 16-25 year olds have past through St Savior’s and been introduced to the genius of Shakespeare, discovering that he is just as accessible today as he was 400 years ago.
I sat down to talk with Darren about Intermission’s latest production - Othello: Remixed, as well as their mission, vision and plans for the future.
