Frantic Othello for Salford

Published: 6 February 2022

Frantic Assembly's adaptation of Shakespeare's Othello comes to The Lowry in Salford November 15–19.

It’s an electrifying take on Shakespeare’s tragedy of paranoia, sex and murder.

They take Shakespeare’s text, and combine its own bruising physicality with an Othello rooted in a volatile 21st century.

Othello’s passionate affair with Desdemona becomes the catalyst for jealousy, betrayal, revenge and the darkest intents.

Originally presented in 2008 and 2014, this updated version in co-production with Curve Theatre Leicester, will tour the UK from autumn onwards.
