Shakespeare’s classic tale of love and betrayal brought up to date in South London Written by William Shakespeare I Directed by Anthony Green
Shakespeare's character, Othello the Moor, is a renowned mercenary soldier. This updated production sets the play within the booming yet mysterious world of western military security companies, the private armies of today. Against the backdrop of the cut-throat competition for military contracts, this production explores the more localized battle of Othello against his own demons as Iago, desperate for revenge, tragically destroys Othello’s relationship with his precious Desdemona.
The Othello Peckham Theatre company are a group of committed artists inspired by the spirit, values, excitement and creativity of The Royal Court’s Theatre Local. They have come together with a common passion and goal: to bring a quality production of Shakespeare to Peckham.
