 The producers say: 'Othello is one of Shakespeare's most startlingly contemporary plays - a masterful depiction of a life torn apart by prejudice.  

'Venice; a western colonial power employs the newly-married Othello, a Muslim general, to lead their army against the impending Turkish invasion.

'The strain of fitting into a society riven by discrimination and fear soon take their toll.

'Manipulated by Iago, Othello's life quickly unravels as he turns on everything he holds dear.'

The play stars Victor Oshin as Othello, Kitty Archer as his wife Desdemona and Paul McEwan as Iago.

This production is brought to the stage by UK Theatre Award winners English Touring Theatre in a co-production with Oxford Playhouse and Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory.  

The play includes violence and strong language, so the age guidance is 12-plus.

The show runs at Cast in Doncaster from October 2 to 6, as part of a national tour. Book at castindoncaster.com or for details of other tour dates, visit www.ett.org.uk
