Othello

Stetson University presents Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Othello Thurs. – Sat., April 20-22 at 8 p.m. and Sun., April 23 at 3 p.m., in Stetson Theatre Arts’ Second Stage located inside the Museum of Art, 600 N. Woodland Blvd., adjacent to the DeLand campus.

Shakespeare’s Othello depicts the story of a Moorish general and his demise at the hands of one of his soldiers, Iago. Driven by his intense hatred of Othello, Iago carefully plants an idea into Othello’s head that his new wife Desdemona has been unfaithful. Over the course of the play, Iago continues to encourage Othello’s suspicions until Othello is eventually driven mad by jealousy.

For this production of Othello, the creative team will stage it using a thrust style arrangement, bringing the audience closer to the performers.
