About the Play
WHEN PASSION MEETS POISON
Undeterred by the differences in their backgrounds and life experiences, Othello and Desdemona defy prejudice to be united in marriage. But deadly malice lurks where the newlyweds least expect it, as the one man Othello trusts the most resolves to destroy their happiness at any cost.
Whispers of suspicion feed irrational jealousy in this gripping psychological drama, one of Shakespeare’s greatest and best-known tragedies.
The annual Stratford Festival event is one of the most popular events hosted by the Alumni Association. Over the years, Professor Paul Werstine '70, leading Shakespeare expert, has provided alumni and friends with thought provoking lectures prior to enjoying world class performances of some of Shakespeare's most well-known works. In recent years, Professor Ian Rae has also joined the group to speak about the Stratford Festival as a cultural icon.
