Ring of Envy
"Ring of Envy" is a modern re-telling of "Othello"
Othello is a highly esteemed boxer at "The Ring Youth Club". The Championships are fast approaching and Othello chooses Michael Cassio - over his ambitious best friend Iago - to be his corner man. This sends Iago into a rage of jealously and he begins an evil and malicious campaign against Othello to tragic ends.
The play explores the universal themes of jealously, manipulation and revenge.
Having studied and workshopped Shakespeare's play with the company, Artistic Director, Darren Raymond, has taken their living language and used it in an engaging way to create a bold, fresh and cutting edge piece of theatre that Shakespeare himself would be proud of.
