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.
BRING ‘YOUNG OTHELLO’ TO LIFE
We need your help in bringing Young Othello to life. We have launched a GoFundMe campaign to support a read-through of Young Othello that we will host later this year.
The funds raised will be used on actors, rehearsal spaces and marketing. Our aim is for this play and research to be more accessible to BAME students, teachers and actors, as well as the general public.
