"This man has experienced what we have only read about... why, this man IS Othello"
Two men arrive in London looking for Shakespeare. They say they are from Balaika, Africa. They have passed through fire to be here and now they are determined for the great man to hear their stories.
They quickly discover that he is gone but a prominent Director swoops them up and places them on stage in front of an expectant audience at Shakespeare’s Globe. Fame, fortune and two smitten actresses await. But can they survive the hostile environment?
In triumphantly energetic ‘Township’ style, two actors play men, women and immigration police to portray this story of love, friendship, and ambition. A vibrant and engagzing theatre experience not to be missed.
