Free For All: Othello with Shakespeare Theatre Company
Events / Free For All: Othello with Shakespeare Theatre Company
The Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Free For All is a much-loved Washington tradition, offering free performances of a Shakespearean classic to the general public each summer.
Ron Daniels’ “engagingly nuanced” (The Washington Post) production of Othello returns for the 27thannual Free For All, a beloved Washington tradition. Among the exotic airs and mysterious shadows of Cyprus, newly married and promoted Moorish general Othello finds himself the pawn in the manipulative games of his right-hand man, Iago. As his imagination is poisoned, Othello turns on his new bride Desdemona and his loyal lieutenant Cassio, and rapidly spirals from hero to murderer in one of Shakespeare’s most haunting tragedies.
Performances run August 15 through August 27.

Saturday: 2:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m.
