What ensues is a hilarious battle of the wits where all parties learn about friendship, integrity, and love.

Our 2017 Season
Othello: The Moor of Venice
Adapted to contemporary times, Shakespeare's 400-year-old play explores current themes such as race, identity, gender, jealousy, and trust.
The play chronicles the downfall of Othello, a Moorish general of the Venetian armies who is married to Desdemona, the daughter of a powerful senator. When Othello promotes Michael Cassio over Othello's Iago, the jealous and enraged Iago weaves a tale that sets out to destroy both men, indifferent to the massive collateral damage wrought by such vengeance.
