Rosalind Parker as Iago in Othello Syndrome, 2013

Rosalind Parker plays Iago in “Othello Syndrome”, 2013.

“I found most amazing Rosalind Parker’s Iago. …  She brings out the joy Iago has in manipulating people – quite apart from his darker purposes- better than than any other actor since Bob Hoskins in the BBC Shakspeare series.” Stephen Vizinczey/ Time Out

Ros Parker… portrayed Iago in a breathtakingly chilling and mesmeric performance. Her lingeringly menacing half-smile which closes several scenes is both cold and calculating. She plays her role not only convincingly but with utterly credible malice. Hers is an outstanding performance.” Maureen Singer/ Time Out

“(Rosalind Parker) is a Machiavelli in the making, the most coldly evil, double dealing, hypocritical Iago I have ever seen, revelling in her schemes like a malicious Mosca.”  MC Jones/ Time Out

“internalised misogyny, pent-up violence and a sociopathic possessiveness… particularly enjoyed Rosalind Parker’s sinuously androgynous Iago” – London City Nights

Rosalind Parker makes for a sturdy Iago, who is surprisingly cold as the manipulative villain. She masterfully turns the jealous and vengeful knave into something unnaturally steely and inert.”  – GGC

 

Rosalind Parker as GwendolenThe Importance of Being Earnest – Spontaneous Productions, London, 2011

The director, Jonathan Kaufman, had a perfect sense of timing, and rhythm and so did his actors. The play flew along as a smoothly and at such speed as a symphony in the hands of a good conductor. The actors were all young, full of energy, passion and intelligence – they made Wilde’s wit sparkle in every sentence. It was a fast performance, yet nothing was lost. I was particularly struck by the actress playing Gwendolen, Rosalind Parker, Joseph Attenborough (Algernon) and Tom Franck (Jack Worthing). Stephen Vizinczey – Author

 

-1The Three Musketeers – Spontaneous Productions, London, 2010

“Dramatic sword-fighting is finely executed around the gardens in an excellent use of the outdoor setting… All three musketeers are well-portrayed with Rosalind Parker a feisty and spirited D’Artagnan.” News Shopper

 

 

 

knife1The Duchess of Malfi – King’s Head Theatre, London, 2009

There is one outstanding conceit to the production: the introduction of two silent servants or “minders”. Under Rosalind Parker’s movement direction they stand unmoveable in corners; bow blankly to their enemies; hold each other’s eyes as they dance furniture on and off stage… A chillingly effective invention.” The British Theatre Guide

“an excellent company of seven, including Rosalind Parker and David Spence as two well-choreographed silent servants, superbly setting the tone of a stifling court atmosphere.” Time Out London
