Shedrick Yarkpai reprises his role as the titular general

Independent Theatre is excited to stage one of Shakespeare's most famous tragedies this winter. Othello is set to take over Star Theatres for a strictly limited season this August and tickets are now on sale.

Othello is set to be a spectacular breathtaking production under the artistic direction of Rob Croser. Featuring a classic haunting tale of jealousy, treachery and murder - you won't want to miss this classic Shakespeare play live on stage.

Othello is a heroic North African general in 1600s Venice. Surprisingly, in a white society, he is befriended by a Venetian senator and his beautiful daughter, Desdemona. Bravely defying society and her father, Desdemona secretly marries Othello and follows him to Cyprus, where he is sent to repel a Turkish invasion. Iago, a junior officer, tormented by personal and professional envy, by playing on Othello's sense of foreignness, sets out to destroy their love, and bring Othello down.

In 2011, Shedrick Yarkpai became the first African-born actor to play Othello in Australia. In Independent Theatre's 2022 production, Yarkpai will reprise his role as the titular general and will be joined by David Daradan as Iago.
