Othello opens!


South Hill Park Arts Centre opened our production of Othello to roaring success.

A tempestuous journey from scandal and intrigue to lust and vengeance.

How do you convince a man to murder his own wife?
In 16th century Venice, a military ensign passed over for promotion and consumed with jealously plots the overthrow of his noble general, the mighty Othello.

Directors for the production are:

Bethany Pitts: Asst Direction
Ron McAllister: Music Direction
Ben Redfern: Movement Direction
Ronin Traynor: Fight Direction
and Max Lewendel in charge of overall direction. With a lot of inspired influence from the cast, designers, and crew as well this is decidedly our most collaborative endeavour to date.

The show features a live sextet of violinists, violists, and cellists and some superb performances as these actor-musicians light up the stage.

Don't miss your chance to see the show now! Visit www.icarustheatre.co.uk/shows/othello.html for cast lists, more info, or to book tickets.

If you intend to see it in London, BOOK NOW! We only have three performances in the big city and will no doubt sell out quickly.
