AFTER  OTHELLO: 

The Moor The Merrier

AFTER OTHELLO, is an original dark-comedy featuring the often-forgotten role of The Clown from Shakespeare’s play, The Tragedy of Othello, The Moor of Venice.  


AFTER OTHELLO follows the role of the bitterly unemployed Clown, who has seen far better days, as he takes us on a comical, absurd, and sometimes searing search to uncover the truth behind the motives and the murders in the famous, brutal, and controversial tragedy of "Othello", from his point of view, while questioning our notions of honesty, jealousy, complicity, evil, and accountability.
