Othello by William Shakespeare

Harrogate Studio Theatre, 27th June – 1st July 2017


Othello, the Moorish General, has everything, a beautiful young wife, command of the Venetian army, and the acclamation of the Senate and people of Venice as a great hero. But he falls prey to the malicious scheming of his devious and thwarted NCO Iago, who infects his chief with the ‘green-eyed monster’ of jealousy, with tragic consequences for all. This great play, full of racial and sexual tension, ranks as one of the greatest of Shakespeare’s tragedies.
