Shakespeare’s Courtyard Theater    2/3/2008 - 4/6/2008 (schedule)

Category:  Shakespeare

The realm of Othello is not of great kingdoms lost and won, nor of courtly politics. It is the marriage bed and not the throne that rivets our attention. Othello aspires to belong to Desdemona’s world, and instead becomes victim to its bigotry and his own monstrous terrors.

Marti Maraden, who returns to CST after directing Much Ado About Nothing in 2006, stages Othello—featuring leading classical actor Derrick Lee Weeden in the title role.
