Sport for Jove presents
OTHELLO
By William Shakespeare

The award-winning company Sport for Jove bring the ultimate story of betrayal, love and deceit to life on stage.

On the fields of war bold, brash and confident solider Othello is swept up with desire for the Senator’s daughter Desdemona. However, when he is betrayed by military brother-in-arms, the cynically destructive Iago, his feelings quickly turn to murderous rage.

Featuring a powerful cast, this unique snapshot of race, politics and society remains as relevant today as it was when the Bard first wrote it. Don’t miss your chance to see this masterpiece live on stage.

FYI This production contains smoke haze and loud noises.
