The Aquila Theatre Company's Othello is set on a modern British military base on Cyprus in a new promenade production - placing the audience amidst the actors, in the middle of the stage action. The play crackles with the resonance of contemporary issues - racism, jealousy, spousal abuse, militarism and the clash of cultures - in a bold, muscular version that utilizes the finest actors of Aquila's ensemble and seeks to free the essential power of Shakespeare's original production on the 400th anniversary of Othello.
Additional Information Regarding This Production:
The Aquila Theatre Company has announced the 10% if all tickets sold to Othello will be donated to Tolerance.org.
