Othello – Closing Night
May 25, 2019 | 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm| $28
By: William Shakespeare
Othello is a brilliant general with the support of the Venetian government and an army behind him. But when he promotes Cassio over Iago, madness and jealousy take over as Iago slanders and schemes to destroy Othello utterly. Events spiral madly out of control as prejudice, pride, and paranoia all clash in one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies.
Babes With Blades Theatre Company brings you the biennial production of BWBTC Shakespeare: productions which solely feature actors who identify as female, trans, and gender-nonconforming, providing the opportunity for audiences to perceive these classic stories through a new lens.
Now, we bring our take on the Bard’s classic tale of jealousy and manipulation.
