A fast paced, modern military dress version of the Shakespeare classic
The Turks are attacking Cyprus and General Othello – ‘The Moor’- is sent with an army by the Venetian Duke to stop their advance. In the claustrophobic atmosphere of a Cypriot military stockade the psychopathic Iago convinces General Othello that his wife, Desdemona, is having an affair with The Moor’s right-hand man, Captain Cassio.
The result is an explosion of mistaken motives, violence and murder. The Bright Umbrella Drama Company present a fast paced, modern military dress version of Shakespeare’s classic of jealousy, anger and mistaken revenge.
Shakespeare’s original script is abridged to 130 minutes including interval.
