Othello, by William Shakespeare
July 29, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
From July 26 to August 3, 2017, Driftwood Theatre will animate six Toronto parks with theatre performance, exhibition and engagement activities surrounding William Shakespeare’s Othello. The unique qualities of these great outdoor spaces will serve as powerful backdrops, enhancing Driftwood’s signature style of interpreting Shakespeare’s plays to reflect the Canadian experience. Staged with the audience on three sides, the production will be rehearsed to allow the actors opportunities to incorporate the unique quality of each venue: no performance will be the same. All performances will be accompanied by The Cyprus Project installation, offering a unique glimpse into Canadian peacekeeping history. While Driftwood’s Summer Shakespearience further engages audiences through free readings, workshops, and participatory events.
