Tight Fit Theatre presents William Shakespeare's Othello

From 7 February to 4 March 2006

Tight Fit Theatre



by William Shakespeare

Broadway Studio Theatre, Catford

directed by Mark Oldknow

Even now, now, very now, an old black ram
Is tupping your white ewe.

Othello. Black man in a white man's world. Muslim in a Christian world. He has defied prejudice to become commander of the Venetian army; feared throughout the world. Newly married to the beautiful and eligible Desdemona (with a reputation that can disarm armies) it seems that the Moor is infallible. Cue Iago, Othello's 'Ancient' who, with a cold intellectual precision and terrifyingly disguised motives, spins a thick web of deceit to push his master to the edge of madness and the depths of revenge.

With Othello Shakespeare offers us not only the definitive study of male sexual jealousy, but perhaps the most pure and unyielding portrait of evil in all of theatre.

Mark Oldknow, whose previous Shakesperian productions at the Broadway Studio have seen glowing reviews and packed houses, returns to direct for Tight Fit Theatre at the invitation of Fer'vent Theatre.

I will wear my heart upon my sleeve
For daws to peck at: I am not what I am.
