Othello (SWP)

Othello (SWP)

Key facts

Playwright: William Shakespeare


Othello is incredibly talented and successful. But he remains an outsider in his city, subject to racism, jealousy and suspicion. Only Desdemona treats him with respect and kindness: they fall passionately in love. His best friend, Iago, watches Othello’s life flourish with unbearable jealousy and plots to undermine his love for Desdemona.

Othello’s world disintegrates into chaos – he loses control of his thoughts and emotions – and turns on the only person in the world who wants to protect him.
