Everyman Theatre, Hope Street, Liverpool, 28 April – 10 July
Who do you trust?
How hard can a heart be?
How jealous can a soul be?
How far can evil go before love is destroyed?
Othello is a distinguished military leader. She commands respect. But not everyone is ready for a leader quite like this one.
This fearsome study of the caustic power of envy places the classic text in a future not too far from now. Clouded by suspicion, tainted by spite, it reaches for the dark core of human hatred and bigotry – a place where love and honour may be hard won, but holding onto them is the hardest task of all.
