Shakespeare on Draught presents: Othello
GIRD YOUR LOINS, #groundlings! Shakespeare on Draught is back on Monday, September 16 with one of Shakespeare's most devastating tragedies: OTHELLO!
Things are looking up for Othello, the Moor of Venice: he's a captain, he's just married the beautiful Desdemona, and he's now in Cyprus having won an important military victory. But his good fortune is cut short by the machinations of Iago, his overlooked officer. Fueled by a bottomless hatred, Iago leads Othello into a jealous madness that ensnares and ruins everyone around him. Considered one of Shakespeare's darkest and most excellent tragedies, we'd like to also point out that it hinges, for the most part, on a handkerchief.
HOW TO ATTEND:
There are no tickets! You just show up. We do ask that attendees make a pay-what-you-can donation to keep this crazy company afloat. There will be receptacles for cash donations or you can donate by card through us on Square or through Orpheus's system on the night of the show. Want to donate RIGHT NOW? You can do that! Go to paypal.me/shakespeareondraught and make our day!
