Tour synopsis, cast & creatives

Othello, a Moor, falls in love with Desdemona but is broken by jealousy falsely encouraged. Shakespeare's most human play sets delicacy and power, trust and jealousy, love and hate, good and evil in stark and tragic opposition. Powerless in the face of their own self destructive instincts, the characters are caught on a downward spiral towards inevitable tragedy. Shakespeare's most famous thriller-tragedy gains new momentum in this explosive contemporary version, starring the UK's hottest young acting talent. With furious choreography from physical theatre masters Frantic Assembly and an adrenalin-fuelled soundtrack from electro-band Hybrid, this is Othello as you've never seen it before. Running time: 90mins with no interval. Age 14+
Age Advisory: 14+ Contains violent scenes


Michael Akinsulire (Othello), Joe Layton (Iago), Chanel Waddock (Desdemona), Oliver Baines (Montano), Tom Gill (Cassio), Felipe Pacheco (Roderigo), Hannah Sinclair Robinson (Bianca), Kirsty Stuart (Emilia), Matthew Trevannion (Brabantio)
