A tempestuous journey from scandal and intrigue to lust and vengeance.

Following on from the success of Macbeth and Romeo & Juliet, the highly acclaimed Icarus Theatre Collective presents a bold and exciting new production of Shakespeare’s most tragic tale.

Othello is a legend in his own lifetime: noble, brave, victorious. Honest Iago fuels his venom with malignance and hateful contempt. Poignant, intense, heartbreaking; Othello mercilessly explores every inch of the human condition.

Othello’s world will be brought vividly to life as a live string quartet and a stunning ensemble cast combine with some of literature’s most vibrant language and characters. A dangerous tale of ambition, jealousy and love will unfurl as Shakespeare’s classic tale of deception hurtles to its dramatic and poignant conclusion.

Icarus Theatre Collective launched in 2004. Lauded as one of the most fearless and dynamic theatre companies in the UK, their reputation for punchy and vibrant productions of contemporary and classic theatre continues to grow. The company’s productions have won countless accolades including Time Out’s Critics Choice, as well as receiving great praise from critics and audiences alike and winning awards from as far afield as Romania (Best Production and Best Actress, The Lesson). Over the years, the company have performed their work both nationally and internationally, including their award-winning production of R.C. Sheriff’s Journey’s End and Eugene Ionesco’s The Lesson, which both played to sell-out houses on their national and international tours.
