Shakespeare’s play Othello is to be performed outdoors in Wimborne at Priest’s House Meseum and Garden on 1 July at 6.30pm.
Dorset-born SISATA present an outdoor production of Shakespeare’s Othello at the Priest’s House Museum and Garden in Wimborne on Saturday 1 July, at 6.30pm. It promises to be a bold, bright and brilliant explosion of a performance, giving a feast for your senses.
In a fast-paced telling of jealousy, love and ambition, Shakespeare’s play follows the tragic story of Othello and his wife Desdemona. Four actors play multiple roles in this masterful debate on the human condition.
The performance is set against a backdrop of the 1980s, with hip-hop culture and drawn from the life and work of the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
SISATA’s mission is to bring engaging and interactive performances of classic stories accessibly to modern audiences, highlighting the timeless issues that are presented. Bursting with energy and sincerity, in true SISATA style, there will still be laughter and song to tie together this extraordinary play.
This production has been adapted and directed by Charmaine K Parkin and is presented in partnership with the Lighthouse, Poole.
Tickets priced at £12.50 (concession £10.50, family £38) are available at www.ticketsource.co.uk/sisata or on 0333 666 3366 (booking fees apply). The performance is suitable for ages 12+. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
