WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Othello, a Moor, falls in love with Desdemona but is broken by jealousy falsely encouraged. Shakespeare's most human play sets delicacy and power, trust and jealousy, love and hate, good and evil in stark and tragic opposition. Powerless in the face of their own self destructive instincts, the characters are caught on a downward spiral towards inevitable tragedy.
This production is set in the 1940s which explores the relatable subjects of War, PTSD, Feminism, Racism and Elitism.
