For its 23rd annual Bard’s Bus Tour, Driftwood Theatre presents Othello, William Shakespeare’s blistering tale of race, jealousy and revenge. The performance is set against a backdrop of Canadian history, when in 1974 Canadian soldiers were caught in a life or death struggle on the small island of Cyprus. All performances of Othello are accompanied by a special audio installation, The Cyprus Project, beginning at 6:30 pm nightly.
The performance of Othello is being brought to the Village of Bloomfield by the Bloomfield Millpond Theatre, the Baxter Arts Centre through the generosity of local sponsors.
