Othello At The Brighton Fringe
Set in the claustrophobic world of modern politics, this contemporary take on Shakespeare’s classic play explores the invasion of privacy, and the devastating effect it can have on people’s lives.
By submersing itself in modern celebrity and paparazzi culture, this production of Othello proves Shakespeare’s relevance to the modern world once and for all.
Othello is Shakespeare’s classic example of the destructive power of jealousy and mistrust. Innocence is corrupted and trust is eroded as every relationship is drawn into a tangled web of jealousies. By exploring the idea that “tearing down privacy lets in chaos and lets out love,” this production looks at Othello in a new, contemporary, cultural light.
Sussex University’s acclaimed drama society is proud to present its third production at the Brighton Fringe festival, after many years of successful productions at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

This is my big directorial debut, and it's shaping up to be a pretty awesome show. I've been working on it since November, and it's taken over most of my life, but hopefully it will all be worth it. Now i just need people to come. We were in The Independent this Saturday, which is amazing, and will hopefully boost our audience numbers, but i still want more!
Please buy tickets, and wish me ridiculous amounts of luck.
