A six-actor adaptation focusing on sexual jealousy, voyeurism, male possession, a woman's view in a male world, and truth.

OTHELLO
Othello
, a streamlined six-actor version of one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies, where layers of understanding unfold about what it means to be a woman in this jealous world. On and around the beds of this production, jealousy and voyeurism bed-hop from one relationship to another like a disease, leaving none of these characters untouched.

We have had wonderful support from the local area residents who have attended three readings of Othello over the past eight months: our first at Schuler Books, the second at Renegade Theater Festival held in Old Town Lansing, and the final at the Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference, which was held in November of 2011 at Michigan State University.  All three readings were very successful and exciting.  Members of the audiences seemed very eager to discuss the possibility of a full production. 

We have garnered the support of Lansing Community College, which has been gracious enough to provide the performance space in exchange for workshops and master classes that will be held both in the summer and during the 2012-13 school year.  LCC has been very eager to support the idea of helping to pave the road to Lansing's next professional classical theatre. 

We have also been fortunate enough to have been awarded a $2000 grant from the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. 

Our total budget is closer to $15,000.  As we do not maintain a performance space, all funds raised go directly to the production.  

It is now time for the fully produced version of Othello!
