Othello at Wilton’s Music Hall

‘O, beware, my lord, of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on.’

In a production that brings one of Shakespeare’s tragedies bang up to date Wilton’s Music Hall brings you Othello. A masterful depiction of a life torn apart by racism and the destructive nature of prejudice, this modern retelling takes the timeless tale of love, jealousy and injustice and reimagines it in the present day. Following on from a critically acclaimed run at the renowned Tobacco Factory Theatres in Bristol, Richard Twyman’s urgently relevant production comes to London for a limited run from 16th May to 3rd June.

The tale of a Muslim general employed by a western colonial power to lead their army against a Turkish invasion, the tragic play sees Othello face the difficulties of assimilation into a society riven by discrimination, fear and mistrust. Manipulated by Iago and his whispered mistruths, this begins to take its toll and his life quickly unravels as he turns on all he holds dear when paranoia and delusion take over. SEEN will be reviewing. Watch this space.

16th May – 3rd June
7:30pm and 2:30pm
£12.50 – £25
