Othello, the Moor of Venice, has been named General of the Venetian Army - earning him the love of the lovely Desdemona and the secret resentment of his closest advisor, Iago. Reason and emotion clash as the ambitious Iago preys on Othello's greatest vulnerability, his love for Desdemona. Heart-stopping and thrilling, Shakespeare's ultimate classic lives on in an exciting production featuring one of Montreal's most creative theatre companies. - Segal Centre for the Arts
"...directed with intelligence and panache...an unusual gender balance that emphasized the women’s roles, an interesting thing in a play that depicts conjugal violence. Strong performances...suggested a feminist perspective." - MONTREAL GAZETTE
"Iago est brillamment défendu par Sean Arbuckle...Alison Darcy a choisi de narrer ce récit dans la plus grande sobriété...la densité du texte induit inévitablement des moments d'ennui profond." - LA PRESSE
