“O, beware, my lord, of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on.”

One of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies—the timeless story of the noble Moor whose love for Desdemona is undone by Iago’s treachery and Othello’s jealousy. Join The Shakespeare project as it launches its eighteenth season with this thrilling tragedy, last produced by The Project in 2001.

A staged reading by professional actors from The Shakespeare Project of Chicago. An informative talk begins fifteen minutes before the performance, which is followed by a question-and-answer session with the director and cast. The Shakespeare Project was founded in 1996 and has performed at the Newberry Library since 2003.

Cosponsored by the Newberry Public Programs department.
