Preview: Modern retelling of Othello comes to Wilton’s Music Hall

Following a critically-acclaimed run at Bristol’s Tobacco Factory Theatres, a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Othello will be staged at Wilton’s Music Hall.

Focusing on anti-Muslim prejudice and ‘alternative facts’, this is a masterful depiction of a life torn apart by racism and the destructive nature of prejudice, this modern retelling takes the timeless tale of love, jealousy and injustice and reimagines it in the present day.

Following on from a critically acclaimed run at the renowned Tobacco Factory Theatres in Bristol, Richard Twyman’s urgently relevant production tackles pertinent issues such as fake news and religious intolerance with a stellar line up including two brilliant RADA graduates, Abraham Popoola and Norah Lopez, and Mark Lockyear as the nefarious Iago.

Othello will run at Wilton’s Music Hall from 16 May until 3 June
