The Lords are back! With another high quality, original practice Shakespeare piece, this time Othello!

One of Shakespeare’s most popular plays, Othello follows the story of a black general who has recently married the young, white daughter of a high-ranking Venetian nobleman. Despite differences in age, race, class and religious background, Othello and Desdemona are obviously deeply in love and successfully defend their right to marry. All seems well until we hear that Iago, Othello's third-in-command, has decided to destroy Othello's happiness.

Starring Toi Whakaari graduate Keagan Fransch in the title role, the production balances a modern context with the timelessness of Shakespeare's writing. Directed by Ania Upstill, the show will be presented as it would have been in Shakespeare’s day, on a thrust stage with universal lighting, giving the audience the feel that the text intended.
