The Shoestring Players Present


One of the most powerful dramas ever written for the stage, “Othello“ is a story of revenge, illusion, passion, mistrust, jealousy, and murder. “Othello” tells the story of a Moorish general who earns the enmity of his ensign Iago when he passes him over for a promotion. Bleak and unsparing, this play offers a masterly portrait of an arch villain and an astute psychological study of the nature of evil.
