Martins Imhangbe plays the title role in this fast-paced version of one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies which features Iago played by three actors – Michael C. FoxOrlando James and Jeremy Neumark Jones.

Rose Riley will play Desdemona, Rachel-Leah Hosker as Emilia/Roderigo and Ryan O’Doherty as Cassio/Brabantio. 

Othello is at the peak of his success: in life, in war, and in love until he finds himself utterly betrayed by the person he has trusted most: ‘honest’ Iago, appearing as one shape-shifting, corrosive force thrillingly dramatised by three performers.


Featuring live music composed by Michael C. Fox, this imaginative and fresh take on Othello conceived by director Sinéad Rushe, allows audiences to be fully immersed in the story, and to understand how Iago is able to penetrate Othello’s mind so deeply.
