About

Othello is Helen Hayes Awards Recommended©.

"Smashing production… a genre that it has all but reinvented... this Othello generates enough heat to ignite an industrial furnace..."
--The Washington Post

"...well worth the price of admission...a refreshingly new and visually startling approach that keys in on the visceral emotions of the original."
--DC Theatre Scene

Once again infusing one of Shakespeare's most poignant tragedies with their "art of silence," Synetic Theater now explores Othello, the tale of love destroyed by jealousy. When the general Othello triumphantly returns home to the promise of peace and marriage, little can he know that his most trusted lieutenant is also one of the most fiendish and manipulative villains imaginable. Scandal is fueled, families and friendships destroyed, as Othello's world comes crashing down, until a "trifle light as air"--a handkerchief--undoes them all. This production includes cast members with and without disabilities. Part of the 2010 International VSA Festival.
