This event has passed.

In following him,
I follow but myself
I am not what I am.        

This is a mating ground. There’s tension around the pool table, cues in hand. A world of broken glass and beatings in the car park. It’s dog eat dog. And it's about to kick off...

Frantic Assembly return with this electrifying take on Shakespeare’s thriller-tragedy of paranoia, jealousy, sex and murder.  Fusing a taut adaptation of the classic text with its trademark hard-hitting choreography, Frantic Assembly takes a scalpel to 21st century Britain, exposing prejudice, danger and fear.

'An essential Othello. Their fierce take on Shakespeare…is a triumph' Observer

'The vibrant and visceral Frantic Assembly' The Independent
