OTHELLO: REMIXED

O, beware, my lord, of jealousy
It is the green-ey’d monster, which doth mock the meat it feeds on…

Shakespeare’s gripping tragedy is remixed by Intermission Theatre Company, breathing fresh life into the stories of Othello, Iago and Desdemona in this new production directed by Darren Raymond (Shakespeare’s Globe: Shakespeare In The Abbey, The Shakespeare Walks).

London 2019. Championship boxer Othello has chosen Michael Cassio to be his corner man. Rejected, Iago is riven with jealousy and deceit. Desdemona is in the center of their conflict which may (or may not) lead to a calamitous end.

In an explosive mashup of language, Othello’s story is staged in a modern day London boxing ring, urgently reinventing Shakespeare’s warnings of manipulation, division and revenge.

Recently praised by Michael Billington in The Guardian for creating ‘one of the most moving celebrations of Shakespeare I’ve experienced’, Intermission Theatre Company and director Darren Raymond make their Omnibus Theatre debut from June 14.

#OthelloRemixed

"Darren’s vision and the work of Intermission has become synonymous with using Shakespeare to reveal the culture of youth growing up in London today. I am really excited by this restaging and hope that it will introduce new audiences to Shakespeare and the transformative power that his words still hold to this day."
- Sir Mark Rylance
