In this tightly-wound adaptation of Othello, eight actors bring to life Shakespeare’s great treatise on the dangers of faith and love. Othello (Evan Lewis Smith), decorated and revered, marries Desdemona (Kalean Ung), the daughter of a local aristocrat. This unexpected pairing dredges up some unpleasant truths about his adopted community and sets in motion a sequence of events that allows Othello to fall prey to the progressively more brutal machinations of Iago (David Melville). This production is a breathless, suspenseful ride.
