“It is the cause, it is the cause, my soul…”

Internationally acclaimed director Ron Daniels joins STC to helm Othello, Shakespeare’s tale of jealousy, duplicity, and destruction. Among the exotic airs and mysterious shadows of Cyprus, newly married and promoted Moorish general Othello finds himself the pawn in the manipulative games of his right-hand man, Iago. As his imagination is poisoned, Othello turns on his new bride Desdemona and his loyal lieutenant Cassio, and rapidly spirals from hero to murderer in one of Shakespeare’s most haunting tragedies.

Director Ron Daniels brings his sure hand with Shakespeare to Washington, D.C., having previously served as the associate artistic director of the American Repertory Theatre and as artistic director of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s The Other Place Theatre. He is an honorary associate director at the RSC.
