Summary

Summary

PASSIONATE LOVE IN A PREJUDICED WORLD

In Shakespeare’s most intimate tragedy, director Bill Rauch explores racism, religious bias, xenophobia, and the more disturbing aspects of relationships in the context of our society’s ongoing struggle with polarizing differences.

Consumed by their bigotry, those who praised the Moorish general Othello’s military successes now reject his marriage to Desdemona. The newlyweds are determined to overcome all obstacles, but Othello’s assignment in an exotic new location draws them into the web of his lieutenant Iago, whose resentment and demons know no bounds.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[The] dual qualities of timeliness and timelessness are underscored by Bill Rauch’s sinewy and bracingly fast-moving production.” Boston Globe
“A haunting production…Othello is a very well done piece of theater that is quite sad and tragic—true—but it leaves the audience with much to ponder.” Siskiyou Daily News on the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s 2018 theatrical production of Othello

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
