Hawaii Shakespeare Festival Presents Othello


by William Shakespeare
directed by R. Kevin Garcia Doyle

August 14 - August 23, 2014

... and when I love thee not,
Chaos is come again ...

Considered to be one of Shakespeare's "four Great Tragedies," The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice tells a story of love, lies, jealousy and revenge. Othello has risen to the rank of general in the Venetian army and has controversially married Desdemona, daughter of a prominent citizen. Othello's seemingly loyal ensign Iago, for reasons of his own (jealousy? revenge? spite? just because?) manipulates the general into believing that his new bride has been unfaithful to him. Spurred on by grief and jealousy, Othello plots grim revenge against the people he believes has wronged him.
