Iago/Othello : Honest Villians-Noble Killers- Forum at Stratford, Ontario Shakespeare Festival

Streamed live on Sep 12, 2013
In Shakespeare’s Othello, the character of Iago is key to why and how the story unfolds; Iago has even more lines than Othello. Many great actors have played both parts on stage, and every new production raises complex questions. The 2013 Festival production (the seventh in Stratford’s history), directed by Chris Abraham, will once more invite us to reflect on Othello’s implications. In this, the second annual Stratford Festival Symposium, leading artists and scholars express their views on the play.

Speakers: Ellen Geer, Artistic Director, Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum, Los Angeles; Dr. Caroline Bicks, Boston College, USA; Bethany Jillard, Graham Abbey and Dion Johnstone, Stratford Festival company
