Othello | The Gladstone Theatre | Thursday, 01. February 2018

Othello is Shakespeare’s tragic tale of race, love, jealousy, and betrayal. Othello is a moorish general in a mostly white army and has just married a beautiful white woman. But if Iago, one of his soldiers, has his way, Othello will lose everything. Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War, Theatre Kraken’s production of Othello is scored with traditional spiritual and slave songs, and reminds us that we have not come as far from the race issues of Shakespeare’s time as we would like to think we have.

Directed by Don Fex
