Othello is one of Shakespeare's most startlingly contemporary plays - a masterful depiction of a life torn apart by prejudice.  

 

Venice; a western colonial power employs the newly-married Othello, a Muslim general, to lead their army against the impending Turkish invasion. The strain  of fitting into a society riven by discrimination and  fear  soon take their toll. Manipulated by Iago, Othello's life quickly unravels as he turns on everything he holds dear.  

 

Following a critically acclaimed tour and London run, Richard Twyman’s vital production of Othello is brought to the stage by UK Theatre Award winners English Touring Theatre in a co-production with Oxford Playhouse and Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory.  

 

The production of Othello includes violence and strong language, age guidance 12+
