Live stage recording of our Summer 2020 production of Othello Directed by Sarah Elliott Produced and Assistant Directed by Dr Rachel Klein Stage Managed by Erin McClure Videography by 360 True North Photography Shakespeare in the Park-ing Lot was our drive-in theatre 2020 pandemic-safe way of carrying on our 43 year tradition of Shakespeare in the Park each summer in Hilo Hawai'i Often referred to as the Bard's most perfect tragedy Othello or The Tragedy of Othello the Moor of Venice is one of Shakespeare's most-produced plays a remarkable distinction considering that theater had borrowed from his extensive catalogue of works almost constantly for the last 400 years Themes of racism xenophobia female agency in patriarchal society the insidiousness of jealousy originating the green-eyed monster turn of phrase we still use today and fundamental human nature are woven throughout this heartbreaking love story The chilling inevitability of a pair of doomed lovers undone by a villain so compelling and complex that he stands head and shoulders above any other bad guy in Shakespeare's canon It's a thrilling can't-miss production with a small immensely talented group of actors The production was put on in a live drive-in format during the peak of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic We kept our eyes on safety and took many precautions to keep our actors crew volunteers and audience members safe Mahalo for your support during this difficult time You can see the full playbill and our sponsors here a https 3A 2F 2Fhiloplayers a org othello-program-2 Please consider making a DONATION to support great programs like this https www paypal com us fundraiser charity 2277201 Hilo Community Players is a registered 501 c 3 non-profit organization
