Football Themed Othello in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, 22 September


Othello is transported from the backstreets of Venice to the back-stabbing boardrooms of Venezia FC.
Instead of being a General, Othello (George Oluyinka) is the first black manager of the club whilst new foreign signing Cassio enrages centre back Iago (Liam Grunshaw). Emila (Morag Peacock) becomes the club’s physio, and Bianca (Roisin McClusker) a wannabe WAG.


Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Othello gets a modern makeover from Lass Productions later this month.
This is the first piece from Lass Productions since the closure of the Lass O’Gowrie’s studio theatre in 2014.
Othello runs from 22 – 29 September at Manchester’s Gullivers in the Northern Quarter and you can view the Vimeo video trailer http://vimeo.com/m/101171520
