Rik Deskin is Iago in Othello

Othello Poster

William Shakespeare’s tragedy of jealousy and revenge.

Previews are April 27, Sat at 8pm and April 28, Sun at 2pm.

The run of the show is Thu-Sat at 8pm and Sun at 2pm. May 2-26

Othello, a celebrated general, yet an outsider, defies social convention and marries Desdemona, a Venetian aristocrat. Enter Othello’s most trusted lieutenant, the honest Iago, who nurses a vengeful hate for his commander. As Iago draws Othello and the audience into a spider web of half-truths, scandal is fueled families and friendships destroyed until a trifle light as air tragically unravels them all.

With poetry rivaling King Lear and with the psychological depth of Hamlet, Shakespeare constructs a highly charged tale of prejudice, revenge, and the destruction of innocence.

Content Advisory: Suitable for teens and adults, Othello contains onstage violence and sexual innuendo. Concerned parents and theater-goers may want to contact the Box Office for more information.
