William Shakespeare's Othello

Showing at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company at February 28 07:30:00 p.m..


PREVIEW Feb 28/Mar 1

Although a Moor and an outsider in Venice, Othellos military prowess has earned him the respect of manyand the seething animosity of one. Othellos long-time underling Iago is resentful of the Moors success, and when Othello elopes with a Venetians daughter, Iago sets in motion a devious plot to exact revenge. With an insinuation here, a whisper there, and the duplicitous deployment of a purloined handkerchief, he masterfully plays on the virtues and vulnerabilities of those around him, weaving with Machiavellian glee the net that shall enmesh them all.
