To beguile many, and be beguiled by one.

For all the resident Literature geeks, here at The Mitre and obviously all of you lovely book-loving Mitre blog readers out there, we have news that will be sure to inject a little vivacity into your lacklustre morning.

Tis the season of theatre! And literary royalty is coming to town, William Shakespeare. His transcendent tale, Othello will be opening at The Lowry Theatre on Wednesday 13th March and will perform its last Manchester show on Saturday the 16th March.

Despite being written several centuries ago, The Tragedy of Othello tells of a tale well ahead of its time. Through the fusion of decadent and controversial issues such as racism, love, jealousy and betrayal, Shakespeare cemented his place in literary greatness and ensured his play would stand the test of time. Today, Othello is taught widely across the UK in many school curriculums and has been adapted into cinema, theatre, ballet and opera.

The play opens on a warm Venetian night with Othello as a highly esteemed general in the service of Venice, but it is not long before tragedy encircles and devours. Iago is an ambitious friend of Othello’s, keen to get his claws into success Iago awaits promotion but when buy cialis buy diazepam google online viagra Othello chooses to promote Michael Cassio to the position of personal lieutenant, Iago is left seething and dangerously jealous. Following this Iago begins to plot an evil and malicious campaign against our protagonist.

Through his persuasive techniques, Iago convinces Othello that Desdemona (Othello’s wife) is having an affair with Cassio. Othello becomes jealous and suspicious of Desdemona and confides in Iago that he plans to poison Desdemona. Othello returns to the castle to kill his innocent wife, he eventually smothers her to death. Emilia, Iago’s wife, now wise to his tricks tells Othello the truth about Iago’s scheming ways, distraught by his actions and the loss of his innocent wife Othello wounds Iago and then kills himself.
