Law firms may destroy souls, but they don't kill people. Do they...? Described by the NY Times as a "delightfully paranoid little nightmare," The Thugs blows up the small lives of workers caught in big, bad business.

Shakespear's Othello

Directed by John Bouchard
Original music by Allison Johnson
April 17-19, 25 & 26 at 7:30pm; April 27 at 2:00pm and May 17 at 8:30pm in Keck Theater
Director John Bouchard gave a talk following the April 18 performance

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."
