WHEN PASSION, POWER AND BETRAYAL COLLIDE….
Othello, the Moor of Venice has been named General of the Venetian Army – earning him the love of the beautiful Desdemona and the secret resentment of his closest advisor, Iago. Reason and emotion clash as the ambitious
Iago preys on Othello’s greatest vulnerability, his love for Desdemona. Watch the trailer!
Against a backdrop of war between Venice and Turkey in the late 16th Century, an era of great exploration and exoticism, Shakespeare paints a spine-tingling mind game played out between three central characters: noble
moor and military hero Othello, his ensign Iago, and Othello’s new wife Desdemona. Passed over for the position of army Lieutenant, the bitter Iago takes Othello, and the audience, on a trip to the darkest depths of humanity.
Lies, betrayal, manipulation… nothing is out of bounds for one of literature’s most fascinating villains.
This imaginative new production stars Andrew Moodie, Sean Arbuckle, Amanda Lisman, Maurice Podbrey, Daniel Brochu, Julie Tamiko Manning, Marcel Jeannin, Paul Hopkins, Daniel Lillford, Gitanjali Jain.
