This Summer on the Festival Mainstage:
Othello is a highly esteemed Cree business executive. Iago is Othello's ambitious friend. Othello’s achievements in the boardroom have allowed him to quickly climb the ranks and gain reputation as a fierce leader; however the colour of his skin is a source of contention among certain peers. When Othello offers Michael Cassio a high-level promotion, Iago becomes deadly jealous and begins an evil and malicious campaign against the hero. Tempers flare when Othello falls in love and elopes with the white daughter of his colleague, setting the stage for a tragic tale of racism, love, jealousy, betrayal, revenge, and repentance.
Much Ado About Nothing
Benedick returns from the Second World War - after a year away - to party with “the lads” in a pretty but sleepy resort town, and so resumes the “merry war” between Beatrice and himself. They had a relationship, of sorts, before Benedick left, and Beatrice has been nursing a wounded heart by mocking Benedick ever since. Benedick is a womanizer and playboy, who openly denounces the prospect of settling down; however his friends believe the two were meant for one another and hatch a plan to make them realize it.
