Othello

William Shakespeare

Counted among William Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies, Othello draws on contemporaneous works about Venice and Turkey, as well as Giraldi Cinthio’s Gli Hecatommithi, and explores themes of race, jealousy and hatred.

 

Othello has secretly married Desdemona for love, much to the displeasure of her father. The jaded and malicious Iago harnesses the jealousy both enacted upon and harboured within Othello to sew the seeds of debilitating doubt in his marriage, with devastating consequences.

Our Country's Good

Timberlake Wertenbaker
Long before Sydney as we know it found its feet, stood an Eighteenth Century penal colony, wherein a marine lieutenant decides to enlist the beaten and starving English immigrant convicts to put on a play. The civilising influence of theatre is marvelllously juxtaposed with the brutality that had to be overcome to birth a new kind of civilisation, in Timberlake Wertenbaker's iconic origin story.
