ETG 2019: Othello

William Shakespeare

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

"Farewell the tranquil mind; farewell content."

It's the 'Swinging Sixties'. Free Jazz is growing. Within a smokey, dimly lit club Iago plots his scheme to overthrow Othello, the moor. With jazz standards oozing in the background, relationships swing amongst the perils of suspicion and deceit.

Jealousy, the green eyed monster, is lurking in the shadows.

Othello is a powerful exploration of the human condition and the disaster that can arise from our emotions. Trust is eroded and innocence is corrupted in this tragic tale of manipulation and jealousy. Featuring live jazz, this exciting, new take on one of Shakespeare's darkest plays is not one to miss.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
