Othello is one of Shakespeare's most theatrically striking plays. This Handbook focuses on Othello as a dramatic work which exploits the resources of the early modern stage and yet still challenges contemporary theatres. Exploring race and gender as performance issues throughout the study, Stuart Hampton-Reeves: / examines the play's earliest performances and the problem of staging darkness on Shakespeare's stage / analyses the play from a performance point of view scene by scene, line by line / surveys key productions and films, tracing the play's move away from mainstream theatres / draws together the latest criticism on Othello's treatment of identity and sexuality.
STUART HAMPTON-REEVES is Professor of Research-Informed Teaching at the University of Central Lancashire, UK, and a Trustee of the British Shakespeare Association. His previous publications include the volume on Measure for Measure, also in the Shakespeare Handbooks series.
