What is currently on at Lyric Hammersmith Theatre (V315)


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.
Author Shakespeare

The country’s leading movement theatre company Frantic Assembly explodes back onto the Lyric stage with this electrifying physical take on Shakespeare’s brutal thriller - a tragedy of paranoia, jealousy, sex and murder. Suitable for ages 14+
