Following cheers and standing ovations at the 2023 World Premiere in Szeged, HUNGARY, 

and equal enthusiasm at the 10th Annual ITAKA Shakespeare Festival in Novi Sad, SERBIA, 

AFTER OTHELLO is finally receiving its U.S. Premiere 

October 2024 in New York, NY.

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 currently unemployed, hungover, and somewhat bitter CLOWN (who has seen far better days), as he takes us on a comical, absurd, and often searing search to uncover the "truth" behind the controversial Shakespearean tragedy from THE CLOWN'S point of view: a surprising journey that questions our notions of honesty, jealousy, evil, and complicity.
