Othello, the brilliant general, is admired and envied by his men and passionately in love with his beautiful young wife. But when he promotes the highborn Cassio over Iago, the die is cast. Enraged, Iago stealthily goes for the kill—lying, manipulating and finally convincing Othello that Desdemona has been unfaithful. Sexual jealousy, envy, misplaced pride and prejudice—this riveting tragedy smolders with timeless issues. Fresh from Shakespeare’s Globe and Royal Shakespeare Company, internationally renowned director Jonathan Munby returns to Chicago to stage one of the greatest psychological thrillers ever written with celebrated actor James Vincent Meredith in the title role.
