Martins Imhangbe (Bridgerton) plays the title role in this fast-paced version of one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies which features Iago played by three actors – Michael C. Fox, Orlando James and Jeremy Neumark Jones.

Othello is at the peak of his success: in life, in war, and in love until he finds himself utterly betrayed by the person he has trusted most: ‘honest’ Iago, appearing as one shape-shifting, corrosive force thrillingly dramatised by three performers.

Featuring live music composed by Michael C. Fox, this imaginative and fresh take on Othello conceived by director Sinéad Rushe, allows audiences to be fully immersed in the story, and to understand how Iago is able to penetrate Othello’s mind so deeply.

“The concept of three Iagos is truly inspired. It offers more nuanced understandings of the challenges facing Othello that are so often missed.” Tony Phillips, Executive Producer, New York Public Radio, BBC Radio 4

“Fascinating, brilliant and innovative.” Alison Grist, Producer & Director (BBC, ITV, SkyArts)

“An electrifying, fresh, once-in-a-generation take on Othello.” Edward Morgan, Northern Town Productions
