Sport for Jove and Seymour Centre present

Othello

by William Shakespeare

24 - 28 Mar 2020

Past Event

A Digital Education Package is available in lieu of live performance.

On a remote military base in an occupied country, a trusted yet devious soldier works away at the certainties of his commander like a creeping tide. Venice and Cyprus become the battlefields upon which love, trust and jealousy are put on the severest trial.

Combining Sport for Jove’s trademark textual clarity with a powerful cast and design, your students will gain deeper comprehension from experiencing this brooding thriller live.

Relentless, dark, and even darkly funny, no Shakespearean play offers a more modern examination of contemporary political tensions.

“Thank you for putting such time and effort into this show. It was brilliant. The kids were just rapt.”
