This Week At Eclectic Theater: Othello and Waiting For Jenkins Presents: Origin Story

Othello Poster

William Shakespeare’s tragedy of jealousy and revenge.

Othello, a celebrated general, yet an outsider, defies social convention and marries Desdemona, a Venetian aristocrat. Enter Othello’s most trusted lieutenant, the “honest” Iago, who nurses a vengeful hate for his commander. As Iago draws Othello and the audience into a spider web of half-truths, scandal is fueled  families and friendships destroyed  until a “trifle light as air” tragically unravels them all.

With poetry rivaling King Lear and with the psychological depth of Hamlet, Shakespeare constructs a highly charged tale of prejudice, revenge, and the destruction of innocence.

Content Advisory: Suitable for teens and adults, Othello contains onstage violence and sexual innuendo. Concerned parents and theater-goers may want to contact the Box Office for more information.
