Deep Dish Presents 'Othello'
Passion and envy incite a deadly duel for center stage in Shakespeare's "Othello," presented by Deep Dish Theater Company May 6- 29. The classic tragedy, directed by Paul Frellick, concludes the company's 10th season at University Mall.
When Othello (Gil Faison), a Moor and rising star in the Venetian army, appoints Cassio (Ryan Brock) as his lieutenant, he unknowingly spurs his close ensign, Iago (David Henderson), to retaliation. Furious for being overlooked, Iago plots to destroy Othello by revealing his secret marriage to Desdemona (Miranda Kahn) and exploiting his jealous nature. Shakespeare's crafty villain will stop at nothing to succeed, and everyone will pay the price. The cast also includes David McClutchey as the spurned lover Roderigo, Mary Forester as Iago's long-suffering wife, Tom Marriott as Desdemona's outraged father, as well as Eric Swenson, Rajeev Rajendran, Anusha Sethuraman, Jonathan Leinbach and Doug Lally.
