Best Bits

Introduce the kids to Shakespeare the way Shakespeare intended, with a play! Inspired by William Shakespeare’s great tragedy, this is a modern, funny and inspired play that brings the story of Othello to life for younger audiences and reflects on the nature of relationships, friendships and how our flaws and feelings can blind us to the truth.

Othello, the bold, brash, confident soldier, and Desdemona, the Senator’s daughter, are truly in love – but not everyone is happy about it. And that is where the problem begins and tolerance ends.

  • Don’t miss your opportunity to experience Shakespeare’s classic text like never before.
  • A modern tale of complicated relationships
  • What better way to introduce kids to the epic storytelling of Shakespeare? 
  • The audience will be weeping tears of both laughter and sorrow. 
  • One of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies retold for ages 8-12
  • A tale of prejudice, love, jealousy, betrayal that will enthrall any viewer into the world of the Bard
