The 2018 Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival’s Professional Company production of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy – fifteen performances only! A story of trust twisted into violence, and beauty lost to terror, “Othello” is directed in a contemporary staging by Cameron Knight (last year’s memorable Benedick in “Much Ado About Nothing”), and features Robert Ramirez as Iago, with stage and screen actor Esau Pritchett in the title role.
Passed over for promotion by General Othello, Ensign Iago embarks on a perilous emotional ruse: to convince Othello that his wife Desdemona is unfaithful, leading to the general’s most searing battle: against green-eyed jealousy.
