To kick off a season that explores gender warfare, victim shaming, racial bias and police corruption, The Seeing Place Theater brings you Shakespeare's timeless drama, OTHELLO. Staged in modern dress with a deep focus on the language, this story is brought to life through the lens of one central dilemma:
How can your ego survive when “the other” stands in your way?
After Othello, a black Arab, is made General and appointed leader of a wartime military operation, he chooses a scholar as his lieutenant and marries a powerful senator's daughter without his consent. Sick of being passed over, Othello's closest friend and best soldier uses his influence to make a deadly point.
This production of OTHELLO is visceral, immediate, and spoken in a way that anyone can understand. “We live in a world that pretends it is accepting of others, while silently or overtly belittling people we do not understand, “ says TSP Artistic Director, Brandon Walker. “It is not just a black play - our ensemble is exploring this story as it relates to all of us today, particularly in our current climate of strained Arab/American relations. OTHELLO’s themes highlight a strong need for empathy with respect to all races, genders, economic classes and religious beliefs.”
