"...and when I love thee not chaos is come again."
When the strong-willed Desdemona marries against her father's wishes, her world is turned upside down. Her new husband is powerful, rugged, romantic...and white, a Conchy Joe.
Bahamian blood runs high in a radical and feisty reworking of Shakespeare's classic. In this world of opposites, black is white, freedom is imprisonment, and love, through the distorting prism of jealousy, remains as unpredictable as the ocean.
With a Caribbean setting and reverse-race casting, OTHELLO is another exciting collaboration between The Nuffield Theatre and Yellowtale Theatre Company.
