The production is set to begin performances at the venue from the 4th October.
Full casting has today been announced by Trish Wadley Productions for the upcoming reimagined production of Othello, which will run at the Riverside Studios from the 4th to the 29th October.
Joining the previously announced Martins Imhangbe (Othello), Michael C. Fox, Orlando James and Jeremy Neumark Jones (collectively as Iago) and Rose Riley (Desdemona),are Rachel Leah-Hosker (Emilia/Roderigo) and Ryan O’Doherty (Cassio/Brabantio).
Director Sinéad Rushe said:“As our cast is now fully complete, I am excited that we can throw ourselves into bringing our unique Othello to life, with three actors collectively playing Iago for the first time. In collaboration with sound and music, the ensemble cast will be demonstrating how Othello’s mind is manipulated by a chorus of voices that he starts to hear everywhere as if it’s literally poisoning the atmosphere. Our hope is that audiences will be thrilled by our fast-paced, and fresh take on one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies.”
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.
This new production of Shakespeare’s play will feature live music composed by Michael C. Fox with the creative team also including: Set and Costume Designer: Natalie Pryce; Sound Design: Ali Taie; Lighting Design: Alex Lewer; Assistant Director: Vivek Sharma; Voice Coach: Shereen Ibrahim and Fight Director: Yarit Do.
