Women's Theatre Festival Presents "OTHELLO"
All Femme History Making Production of OTHELLO
Women’s Theatre Festival is proud to officially announce OTHELLO by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE in a modern verse translation by MFONISO UDOFIA as our Spring ‘21 Virtual Livestream Mainstage Production, produced in partnership with PLAY ON SHAKESPEARE. OTHELLO takes place at Venice College, an elite all-female PWI (predominantly white institution) collegiate academic institution. Despite the implications of systemic racism within the school, the brilliant Othello excels both academically and socially. Her success triggers envy and uncovers the covert racism of her peers, especially that of her close friend and “ally” Iago, who sets in motion a vile scheme to sabotage and destroy her. TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW for the 5 live performances of OTHELLO: April 8, 9, 10, 16, & 17 at 8pm ET. Live performances will be followed by a 3 day Video On Demand recorded version. You can find these tickets on our website or you can visit wtfothello.eventbrite.com to secure your ticket today! All tickets to OTHELLO are Pay What You Can.
