ETG is incredibly excited to announce our 2018 tour: OTHELLO
“Farewell the tranquil mind; farewell content.”
It’s the Swinging Sixties. Free Jazz is growing. Within a smokey, dimly-lit club, Iago plots his scheme to overthrow Othello, the moor. With jazz standards oozing in the background, relationships swing amongst the perils of suspicion and deceit.
Jealousy, the green eyed monster, is lurking in the shadows.
Othello is a powerful exploration of the human condition and the disaster that can arise from our emotions. Trust is eroded and innocence is corrupted in this tragic tale of manipulation and jealousy. Featuring live jazz, this exciting, new take on one of Shakespeare’s darkest plays is not one to miss.
Directed this year by Joy Gingell and brought together by an incredibly talented team of actors and designers, ETG 2018 will be touring through France, Switzerland and Belgium before finishing the tour with a home run at The Cockpit Theatre in London and the ADC Theatre, Cambridge.
