TRUST NO ONE
Following the acclaimed New York run, Theatre for a New Audience’s production of Othello comes to Intiman Theatre. Director Arin Arbus ignites Seattle’s summer with her adroit sense of storytelling and gift for language. When Othello and Desdemona elope to consummate their undeniable passion, Iago sees his chance to destroy the Moor he secretly hates. Iago convinces Othello his bride is having a tawdry affair with Lieutenant Cassio. Othello becomes enraged, Iago fuels the scandal and Othello’s world comes crashing down. And a handkerchief undoes them all.
Intiman presents the critically acclaimed Theatre for a New Audience production of Othello, one of the best-received stagings of a Shakespeare play in the last decade
“This is among the most sensitively directed, eloquently designed and impeccably acted productions of a Shakespeare tragedy that the city has seen in years… Ms. Arbus allows this most taut and tense of Shakespeare’s tragedies to weave its inexorable spell simply by letting the language breathe and the drama unfold at a quietly accelerating rhythm.” – New York Times
