Othello, National School of Drama, Delhi, India

Presented in Hindi      
December 15-18, 2016
Abhimanch Auditorium, National School of Drama, Delhi, India, as a Second Year Student production

A robust production in modern dress. Its adaptive energies lie in the contemporized revisioning of Shakespeare. The military milieu is emphasized, and Othello and Iago are buddies, even seen gyming together. Iago's wiliness is believable and Othello's susceptibility becomes understandable. Desdemona is spirited: she jumps out of the bed and runs to the bedroom door banging on it for help at the end. The verse in translation is handled with ease and fluency, adding to the contemporary performance of the play.
