Driftwood Theatre presents Othello. William Shakespeare’s blistering tale of race, jealousy and revenge is set against the backdrop of Canadian history, when in 1974 Canadian soldiers are caught in a life or death struggle on the small island of Cyprus.
In 2017, Driftwood Theatre embraces the unique quality of over 20 Ontario communities. With a site-specific aesthetic incorporating public space, no two performances of Othello will be quite the same.
All performances of Othello are accompanied by a special audio installation, The Cyprus Project, beginning at 6:30pm nightly.
The Cyprus Project (6:30 pm)
