“O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-ey'd monster, which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.” Act 3 Scene 3
The Events Centre, Caloundra and Bell Shakespeare present the national touring play Othello on Saturday 1st October at 7.30pm. A devastating exploration of the battle between love and jealousy, directed by Peter Evans.
The triumphant general Othello returns from battle with the gratitude of the state – and the love of Desdemona - who defies social convention and her father’s will to marry him. Jealousies around their match and Othello’s rise to prominence simmer to the surface, causing destructive rifts in a story that piles secret upon secret, and betrayal upon betrayal.
Othello’s ensign, Iago, harbours a deeply held resentment and his and Desdemona’s marriage is fatally undermined by the insinuations of a master manipulator.
Othello is a saga that probes the human capacity for petty jealousies and revenge while revelling in the sheer wickedness of malicious manipulations.
Starring Ray Chong Nee as Othello (Bell Shakespeare’s The Dream and MTC’s I Call My Brothers) and Yalin Ozucelik as Iago (Bell Shakespeare’s Henry IV and STC’s Cyrano de Bergerac) in one of Shakespeare’s most captivating and implosive pairings.
