Murfreesboro Little Theatre’s Backyard Bard presents a special outdoor showing of William Shakespeare’s Othello in May.
Othello has secretly married Desdemona, the daughter of Brabantio. When he finds out, he is outraged, and promptly disowns her. Iago harbors a secret jealousy and resentment towards Othello. Intent on revenge, Iago hatches a devious plan to plant suspicions in Othello’s mind that Desdemona has been unfaithful to him with Cassio.
Directed by Shane Lowery and Emma Hawkins, Othello will play at 7 p.m. for three weeks, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, May 10–12, 17–19 and 24–26.
Set in the Wild West, this performance will be outdoors, so bring camping chairs or a blanket to sit on.
Admission is free for the community, though MLT will accept donations.
Murfreesboro Little Theatre is located at 702 Ewing Blvd., Murfreesboro.
