About the Show
Sinéad Rushe's production of Shakespeare's tragedy featuring three Iagos.
Othello is a noble black warrior in the Venetian army who is in love with Desdemona, the daughter of a prominent senator named Brabantio. When he discovers that the two have secretly married, he disowns Desdemona.
Iago has a secret resentment towards Othello as another soldier has been given seniority over him and he suspects that Othello has been cheating with his wife. Plotting revenge, Iago plans a devious comeback to plant suspicions in Othello’s mind that Desdemona has been having an affair with Cassio...
Sinéad Rushe's reimagining of Othello transforms the character of Iago into an ensemble of three actors, who shapeshift into different parts of his personality who work as a team to disorient their targets.
