A Frantic Assembly and Theatre Royal Plymouth co-production in association with Curve Theatre

Shakespeare's Othello



In following him I follow but myself 
I am not what I am

This is a mating ground. There’s tension around the pool table, cues in hand. A world of broken glass and beatings in the car park. It’s dog eat dog. And it’s about to kick off…

Othello’s passionate affair with Desdemona leaves him open to jealousy and attack – with devastating consequences. Here, violence is a way of life and reputation is everything.

Frantic Assembly return to Curve with this electrifying take on Shakespeare’s thriller-tragedy of paranoia, jealousy, sex and murder. Fusing a taut adaptation of the classic text with its trademark hard-hitting choreography, Frantic Assembly takes a scalpel to 21st century Britain, exposing prejudice, danger and fear.

Winner of the TMA Award for Best Direction, this unforgettable production from Frantic Assembly comes to Curve following the success of The Believers earlier this year.
