“Not one male character in the play has a healthy relationship with women.”
Paul McEwan plays the character of Iago in English Touring Theatre’s modern interpretation of Othello. McEwan explores the problematic issue of toxic masculinity in the play and provides an in-depth analysis of one of Shakespeare’s most manipulative villains, considering him not as a Machiavel but as a deeply insecure individual.
McEwan details his preparation for the role, including using previous experiences to connect with Iago’s motivations and emphasises the importance of theatre and art in general as an opportunity for personal reflection.
