Description

Othello

, considered to be the pinnacle of the Bard’s four great tragedies (along with Hamlet, King Lear and Macbeth) opens A Noise Within’s 2005-06 season. While other Shakespeare characters are impressively evil in their own way, none of them enjoys the same diabolical role as Iago; his hatred for and jealousy of the noble Moor wreaks havoc and destruction as victims fall by the wayside, one by one. The play also deals with themes of trust, honor and reputation, as well as patriarchy and the political state.

Military superman Othello rushes from Venice to the Isle of Cyprus, young bride Desdemona in tow, to crush a deadly invasion. In a culture of warriors in search of a war, the great general is seduced by his subordinate and masterful liar, “honest” Iago into confronting his savage within. Shakespeare’s chamber drama charts the destruction of innocence by a malignant will.
