About the Play
The valiant exploits of the Moorish general Othello have earned him the gratitude of the Venetian state he serves – and the love of Desdemona, who defies social convention and her father’s will to marry him. But Othello’s ensign, Iago, harbours a secret resentment – and during a mission to Cyprus, he plants the seeds that will destroy Othello’s love.

Audience Advisory
Of most interest to audiences aged 12 and up. The story hinges upon unjustified suspicions of sexual infidelity and involves some violence, but this is not expected to be unduly graphic.
