Shakespeare’s OTHELLO chronicles the epic love story of Othello and Desdemona and the lies and betrayal of Iago that lead to their ultimate demise. Through a series of events that rivals today’s greatest soap operas, Iago manipulates Othello into believing that his innocent wife Desdemona has been having an affair with Cassio. The audience is resigned to watch as Othello descends into jealousy and madness, Desdemona fights to win back her honor that she unjustly lost, and Iago pulls the strings on the whole charade.

OTHELLO is ultimately a play about race, sex, power, and deceit that is still relevant 400 years after its publication. Come join us for a tantalizing night and enjoy one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies.
