Hunter Gatherers
Pam and Richard are hosting their best friends, Wendy and Tom, for an annual dinner get-together. An animal sacrifice kicks off the evening, followed by a little more sex, violence, deception, wrestling, and dancing than at previous parties. A darkly comic evening where the line between civilized and primal man is blurred, and where not everyone will survive long enough to enjoy the brownies for dessert.

Thursday, February 26, 2015 through Sunday, March 15, 2015
To kick off a season that explores gender warfare, victim shaming, racial bias and police corruption, The Seeing Place Theater brings you Shakespeare's timeless drama, OTHELLO. Staged in modern dress with a deep focus on the language, this story is brought to life through the lens of one central dilemma:

How can your ego survive when “the other” stands in your way?

Venue: ( Clarion Theatre)

Producer: ( The Seeing Place Theater)
The Seeing Place Theater
City: New York

Additional Notes:
After Othello, a black Arab, is made General and appointed leader of a wartime military operation, he chooses a scholar as his lieutenant and marries a powerful senator's daughter without his consent. Sick of being passed over, Othello's closest friend and best soldier uses his influence to make a deadly point.

“We live in a world that pretends it is accepting of others, while silently or overtly belittling people we do not understand, “ says TSP Artistic Director, Brandon Walker. “It is not just a black play - our ensemble is exploring this story as it relates to all of us today, particularly in our current climate of strained Arab/American relations. OTHELLO’s themes highlight a strong need for empathy with respect to all races, genders, economic classes and religious beliefs.”

This production of OTHELLO is visceral, immediate, and spoken in a way that anyone can understand.

"Refreshing and powerful." - What's On Off Broadway

A hilarious, comedic portrayal of three very different divorced women – Bethany the aristocrat, Bridget the country girl and Mary the “exotic” seductress from New Jersey – all forced by circumstances to share an apartment and join forces on a hunt for the perfect man. Their quest is the platform to debate male & female relationships, love, and trust, with an insightful and humorous take on life’s true priorities.
