Othello for the Baxter Theatre

03 March 2008

The successful production of Othello, which was performed at the Little Theatre in 2007, will be staged at the Baxter Theatre Centre this month.

It forms part of the UCT drama department's commitment to staging accessible and vital works for Grade 12 pupils in the Western Cape.

Othello is one of William Shakespeare's most intimate and tightly-constructed works. There are no kings in this play, which makes it unique among his tragedies.

The title role of the Moor, Iago, is played by Vaneshran Arumugam, supported by a cast of senior UCT drama students that includes Charlie Keegan, the 2007 winner of the prestigious Fleur du Cap Theatre Award for Best Student.

Award winners include the director, Geoffrey Hyland, and Illka Louw, who designed the costumes. Daniel Galloway designed the lighting.
