OTHELLO (article first published : 2003-12-30)

Following the sellout successes of their previous annual presentations of the Matric Shakespeare setworks, The Actors Co-operative will be mounting a major production of Othello in February next year. National Vita Best Director Garth Anderson, who has been at the helm of all the Co-opís previous annual Shakespeares, will be responsible for this full-scale production.

Othello will star Teboho T-bone Hlahane in the title role opposite South African theatre superstar Frantz Dobrowsky as Iago. Clare Mortimer will be seen in the female lead role of Desdemona. Alison Cassels will lead the strong supporting cast, playing Emilia. Bryan Hiles will play Michael Cassio, with Oded Rouche and Garth Anderson completing the ensemble.

The two hour long full production of Othello will be presented at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre. Performances will be staged in a three week season from February 10 to 27 weekdays at 09h00 and 12h00. Othello will also play the Hilton College Theatre on March 1, 2 and 3.

The cost is R30 per learner (one teacher per 30 pupils admitted free). Booking is through The Actors Co-operative agent Margie Coppen on 083 251 9412.
