Othello
  • London Fringe

One of Shakespeare's most timeless plays is made ever more relevant with this contemporary re-setting, a Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory co-production directed by Richard Twyman, Artistic Director for English Touring Theatre.

RADA graduate, Abraham Popoola, takes the title role as a Muslim general; facing difficult decisions and watching his life unravel when employed by a western colonial power to lead their army against a Turkish invasion.

This masterful depiction of a life torn apart by racism and the destructive nature of prejudice features a cast whose stage credits include performances in 'Hamlet' at the Globe, 'The Alchemist' and 'Othello' for the RSC and 'The Last Days of Judas Iscariot at the Almeida.
