Othello by William Shakesphere
The Turks are attacking Cyprus and General Othello, ‘The Moor’, is sent with an army by the Duke of Venice to stop their advance. In the claustrophobic atmosphere of a Cypriot military stockade, the psychopathic Iago convinces General Othello that Desdemona, the Moor’s wife is having an affair with his right-hand man, Captain Cassio. The result is an explosion of mistaken motives, violence and murder.
The Bright Umbrella Drama Company present Shakespeare’s script (abridged) in a fast paced, modern military setting of the Bard’s classic of jealousy, anger and revenge.
“Othello was a triumph for Bright Umbrella Drama Company… Glenn McGivern plays scheming Iago as a brutal bully hidden in plain sight… making great entrances and bringing a suitably dominant presence… Bryony Randall gave Desdemona a sense of pluck. capable of turning up the emotion”. Alan Meban (‘Alan in Belfast’)
