Sport for Jove and Seymour Centre present


By William Shakespeare

10 - 13 Apr 2019

This innovative new production combines Sport For Jove’s trademark storytelling with a powerful cast and design. Become immersed in this brooding thriller as award-winning theatre company Sport For Jove presents one of Shakespeare’s most relentless dramas, Othello.


On a remote military base in an occupied country, a trusted soldier will work away at the certainty of his commander like an irresistible tide. Venice and Cyprus become the battlefields upon which family, love, community, trust, ambition and jealousy are put under the severest trial.


No Shakespeare play is more moving, or offers a more modern sensibility of contemporary political tensions.
