'Open my veins, pluck out my eyes
there is no pain I do not deserve.'

Zimbabwe 2008. The impending elections bring hope to a country left raw by oppression. Will Tsvangirai topple Mugabe? Otieno, a militia leader protecting a white farm under siege by Mugabe's war veterans, secretly marries the white farmer's daughter. But Otieno's confidante Ian is sowing seeds of jealousy to destroy their love...

A contemporary reworking of Shakespeare's Othello, set against the continuing deprivation of present-day Zimbabwe. This visceral new play brings a brutal beauty to the well-known tragedy of violence and betrayal.
