The National Players Touring Theater is back in Spearfish for the third time in as many years! This time the group will present William Shakespeare’s “Othello” at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 10, 2018. Now touring for its 69th consecutive year, this unique theater ensemble brings innovative productions to communities across the United States. This is the FINAL event of our 2017-18 Subscription Series season.
Cost is $25 adults, $10 youth & BHSU students. Individual tickets are available for sale on Sept. 1.
Othello is a celebrated general returning home from the wars, but his dark skin and foreign origin inspire hatred from several people, especially the man he trusts most: Lago. As Lago twists Othello’s love for his wife Desdemona, everyone becomes pawns in Lago’s devious plots.
This classic tale of identity, bigotry, and deceit is examined with contemporary clarity, combining Shakespeare’s language with modern clothing to transform the drama into a powerful story for America today.
National Players is a program of Olney Theatre Center and is made possible by support from the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, the Maryland State Department of Education, and the Maryland State Arts Council.
