“BELL SHAKESPEARE – ARGUABLY THE COUNTRY’S BEST SHAKESPEAREAN THEATRE COMPANY” HERALD SUN
O, BEWARE, MY LORD, OF JEALOUSY; IT IS THE GREEN-EY’D MONSTER OTHELLO ACT 111, SC 111
A violent exploration of the thin line that separates love and jealousy, Othello is a relentless journey of vicious passion.
A warrior on the fields of war, but felled by the sharpness of whispered words, Othello is a man swept up in desire, quickly turned to murderous ambition when he is betrayed by his military brother-in-arms, the cynically destructive Iago.
One of William Shakespeare’s most famous and passionate tragedies, Othello will be directed by Artistic Director Peter Evans, in a gripping production that will touch audiences to their core, as envy is a weapon wielded with brazen savagery, and the complex contradictory nature of humanity is tested.
Starring Ray Nee Chong as Othello (Bell Shakespeare’s The Dream) and Yalin Ozucelik as Iago (Bell Shakespeare’s Henry IV) , in one of Shakespeare’s most captivating and devastating pairings, this astonishing epic tragedy will rage with jealousy on stages across Australia in Bell Shakespeare’s 2016 National Tour.
