Othello and Iago fuse to become a single force bent on self-annihilation.
A highly-wrought, interior and poetic study of personal anguish and self-destruction.
Othello and Iago fuse to become a single force bent on self-annihilation. The two characters constantly mirror each other, as if Othello’s jealousy needs to be fed by Iago’s inner voice. Jealousy is a monstrous interior force, which can devour anyone. Iago represents this cannibalistic energy and will that ends up devouring his own double: Othello. A highly-wrought, interior and poetic study of personal anguish and self-destruction.
Roberto Cavosi’s work absorbs and transforms the psychological intensity at the heart of modern and contemporary theatre, from Pirandello to Beckett. Othello’s Guilt is a monologue adapted and directed by Cavosi inspired by Shakespeare’s play.
The production is a 50 minute monologue with actor Marco Gambino, who returns to The Rose Playhouse after performing a brief extract of the play at The International Voice in Shakespeare conference on Six Characters in search of author. He has recently received international acclaim after appearing in popular Italian television series Squadra Antimafia, and Inspector Montalbano.
The Rose Playhouse, Bankside’s first theatre, 1587.
The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred meters away.
