BWBTC Shakespeare: Othello
Babes With Blades Theatre Company brings you their biennial production of BWBTC Shakespeare: productions which solely feature actors who identify as female, trans, and gender-nonconforming, providing the opportunity for audiences to perceive these classic stories through a new lens.

Now, they bring their take on the Bards classic tale of jealousy and manipulation.

Othello is a brilliant general with the support of the Venetian government and an army behind him. But when he promote Cassio over Iago, madness and jealous takes over as Iago slanders and schemes to destroy Othello utterly. As events madly spiral, prejudice, pride, and paranoia all clash in this, one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies.
