Shake Up Shakespeare Festival - OTHELLO

By William Shakespeare

Mon 05 Nov 2012 - Fri 09 Nov 2012

With only three actors, this gripping adaptation of Shakespeare’s domestic masterpiece cuts to the very heart of the play.

When the celebrated general, Othello, promotes a favoured lieutenant, he provokes his neglected friend Iago into deadly vengeance. The clever Iago plants a seed in Othello’s mind: that his beautiful young wife, Desdemona, has been unfaithful. Within just a few hours Othello’s world unravels, with violent and tragic consequences. 

Othello is also touring to schools within one hour of The Watermill – if you would like to book a performance in your school, please call the Outreach Department on 01635 570927 or email outreach@watermill.org.uk.
