The Baxter presents the South African premiere of Lara Foot's highly acclaimed Othello.

Foot's version of Shakespeare’s Othello, debuted at the Düsseldorf Schauspielhaus in Germany, in September 2022, to celebrated praise and earned her the Gustaf Theatre Award 2023 for Outstanding Artistic Achievement for the Direction of Othello.

In this South African production, with design by Gerhard Marx and music by Kyle Shepherd, Foot focuses on Othello's inner life, wanting to add an African perspective, staging the play in several languages and relocating it to the time of German colonialism.

The production also features a stellar cast led by Atandwa Kani as Othello, Albert Pretorius as Iago, Faniswa Yisa as Emilia, Wessel Pretorius as Lodovico, Carla Smit as Desdemona and The Baxter Company members.
