Young Othello is a drama set within an ancient African kingdom untouched by slavery or colonialism. It explores the natural and the mystical world to highlight human strength and weakness, and emphasises the uncontrollable passage of time. As the story unfolds, greed, jealousy and the thirst for power bring about the destruction of a nation and provide us with a deeper understanding of one of Shakespeare's most maligned characters.
Our ambition is to stage a full production of Young Othello in 2025.
Our 1st phase towards our vision was completed in October 2017 with two public theatrical readings at Canada Water Cultural Space and the Courtyard Theatre in Hoxton.
We are currently in phase 2 revising script, building partnerships and raising production funds. We aim to complete this phase at the end of 2021.
