Think Theatre’s acclaimed production of Shakespeare’s Othello, currently playing to schools audiences at The Playhouse in Durban, has one public performance in the Playhouse Drama Theatre on Tuesday 10 March at 19h00.
As ever before, the great work continues to hold today’s audiences in its grip, as its core themes of love, envy, corruption and betrayal remain powerfully relevant to the human condition. Othello is produced by Margie Coppen and directed multi-winning actress Clare Mortimer.
Nhlakanipho Manqele plays Othello, with Cara Roberts appearing as his doomed young wife, Desdemona. Clinton Small reprises his award-winning portrayal of the villainous Iago, opposite Mortimer as his spouse, Emilia. Think Theatre’s accomplished cast also includes Darren King, Marc Kay, Bryan Hiles, Caitlyn Kilburn, Michael Gritten and Rowan Bartlett.
Tickets are R100 (adults) and R58 (students and scholars). Booking is through Doreen Stanley on 033- 343 4884 or 084 556 0668 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Think Theatre's production of Othello is presented in association with the Playhouse Company and supported by the University of Johannesburg.
