It’s 2015. There’s a new leader in Army Headquarters.

Othello’s appointment is not approved of by all, because of her gender as well as her ethnicity. Behind the combat training, military endeavours and national scrutiny, some personal conflicts are at play.

Iago’s jealousy begins to manifest itself. The soldiers and their loved ones are dragged into a melee of mistrust, resentment and revenge.

This high-action and boldly original take on Shakespeare’s powerhouse tragedy explores a new framework of distrustful relationships, gender politics and discrimination.

“In following [her] I follow but myself… I am not what I am.”
