Venice; a western colonial power employs the newly-married Othello, a Muslim general, to lead their army against the impending Turkish invasion. The strain of fitting into a society riven by discrimination and fear soon take their toll. Manipulated by Iago, Othello’s life quickly unravels as he turns on everything he holds dear.

Othello is one of Shakespeare’s most startlingly contemporary plays – a masterful depiction of a life torn apart by prejudice.

Following a critically acclaimed Bristol and London run, English Touring Theatre revives Richard Twyman’s vital production of Othello in a co-production with Oxford Playhouse and Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory.
