Midsumma-2024-IAGOLate August Productions presents IAGO by Douglas Hackett at the Cracked Actors Theatre, as part of the 2024 Midsumma Festival, from 31 January – 4 February.

Kiss or kill, IAGO is a modern re-visioning of William Shakespeare’s Othello, through the lens of its central relationship.

Through contemporary voice, Elizabethan language, dance, stage combat and scenes of physical intimacy, IAGO is a 70-minute investigation of male sexuality that asks the audience to confront their own ideas of masculinity.

With dramaturgy by acclaimed Australian playwright Stephen Sewell, Douglas Hackett’s debut play will feature brilliant performances by Gideon Mzembe and Willem Whitfield, and dazzling choreography from Annalee Beckman.

Cracked Actors Theatre, 34 Lakeside Drive, Albert Park
Season: 31 January – 4 February 2024
