Othello and Desdemona have it all -- true love, success and happiness. But "honest" Iago is a master of manipulation, a magician of deceit who does harm merely for the pleasure of it. One of the most compelling villains ever written, Iago draws Othello and the audience into his spider's web of half-truths. Horrified and enthralled, the viewer can't help but be fascinated by him, even as he transforms love into hate and happiness into misery. A one-night-only public performance of Seattle Shakespeare Company's touring production, this presentation of Othello
features a small ensemble cast of actors engaging in behind-the-scenes quick changes in order to portray multiple characters.
