Hold Thy Peace and the Brandeis Pluralism Alliance invite you to attend the tragedy of Othello! Brandeis University’s student-led Shakespeare group has re-imagined the classic play, making Othello the only human in a community of cyborgs. This new setting is inspired by steampunk, a science fiction genre based on Victorian visions of utopia.
The first show is in the Shapiro Campus Center Theater on Friday, March 31 at 7:00pm, followed by a talk-back with the actors and directors. We will discuss issues that surface when race, theatre, and science fiction collide.
Additional performances are on Friday, April 1 and Saturday, April 2 at 8:00 PM, followed by a Sunday, April 3 matinee at 2:00 PM.
