RTP Thursday Theatre Talk on Othello
with Miriam Gilbert
May 8, 7p-9p at the Iowa City Public Library, Room A

June 20 - July 13, 2014
Riverside Festival Stage
Lower City Park, Iowa City, Iowa

Directed by Theodore Swetz

Shakespeare’s Othello is an emotionally gripping thriller of jealousy, passion and revenge. The story explores race, betrayal and politics through the tumultuous romance of the military general Othello, his wife Desdemona and Othello’s secret rival, Iago.  Othello is a must-see classic for all fans of the stage.

Directed by Ron Clark

Called by The Guardian, “Rollicking, fast-moving and hilarious,” The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] is a full-power, energetic romp through Shakespeare covering all 37 plays in 97 minutes – with some creative editing, of course!  This parody of the classic plays includes modern pop-culture references, audience engagement, and improvisation- enough to make any Shakespeare lover, or hater, laugh out loud.
