Othello is Shakespeare’s remarkable domestic tragedy. Almost a chamber play, against the background of the tumult of Venetian trade wars, Othello follows five characters trapped inside the violent revenge fantasy of theater’s most chilling psychopath. At the heart of his play, Shakespeare retells the Italian writer Cinthio’s story of African Othello, the great general of Venice, driven mad with jealousy at the hands of his trusted officer, Iago. It is a uniquely powerful and moving experience as we watch the most improbable, and simultaneously hopeful, love story—of winter and spring, black and white—disintegrate before us in the hands of what Coleridge called “motiveless malignity.”
Othello also performs April 18-19, 25-26 at 7:30pm and April 27 at 2:00pm
Director John Bouchard will give a talk following the April 18 performance
