Pop-up Globe

Othello Othello Othello Othello Othello Othello

"There is certainly no holding back as British director Ben Naylor presents a vigorously physical, blood-soaked interpretation of a play which has acts of appalling cruelty mingling with exquisite poetry.”
New Zealand Herald, 2017

Witness Shakespeare's ultimate psychological thriller in Pop-up Globe's production of Othello.

Take a journey into the diseased mind of the noble Moor, as he's consumed by "the green-eyed monster"; jealousy.

The twists and turns in this powerful production will have you on the edge of your seat.
Othello is one of Shakespeare’s greatest psychological thrillers. In a theatre of war, a great general is brought down by the power of his own love and the prejudice of others.

Othello forces us to confront a timeless fear: does the Devil move among us? Racism, jealousy and envy conspire in Shakespeare’s dark tragedy, in this full production inspired by the Jacobean period, performed by a specially-formed international ensemble in spectacular bespoke costumes.

The Pop-up Globe Queen’s Company is Pop-up Globe’s resident mixed company of male and female actors and musicians, working with world experts to bring you the shock of the old: the effect of Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space for which they were written.
