Award-winning theatre company Northern Broadsides returns to the Rose theatre with Othello, following their production of Romeo And Juliet in 2008.
Love, racism, jealousy and desire are at the emotional core of Shakespeare’s monumental tragedy – a tender love story shattered by one man’s obsessive hatred of another.
Othello is a legend in his own lifetime – noble, brave and victorious. Iago, passed over for a position in the army, fuels his venom with malignance and hateful contempt.
Poignant, intense and heartbreaking, Othello mercilessly explores every inch of the human condition.
Broadsides’s Artistic Director Barrie Rutter directs Lenny Henry in the title role alongside Conrad Nelson as Iago.
