Black Box returns to the John Thaw Theatre, following their sell-out Of Mice and Men in 2012, with an abridged Shakespeare classic OTHELLO
Believing Othello has promoted the fast-rising Cassio over himself, Iago plots to destroy both Cassio and Othello. Iago convinces the jealous Othello that his beautiful wife Desdemona is unfaithful, and that Cassio is her lover. Jealousy is followed by tragedy, then retribution.
A production that depicts the devastating effects of jealousy, "...the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds upon".
Othello is part of the National Curriculum 2012-13. The production is scheduled to tie-in with both GCSE and A level study.
Black Box, Liverpool’s award-winning theatre company was founded by Artistic Director Ian Moore in 1994 with an excellent track record for adapting and performing classic literature - Of Mice and Men (2012) An Inspector Calls (2011) Hamlet (2010) and James and the Giant Peach (2009)
