Othello

SISATA was created out of our passion for Shakespeare, making theatre accessible and the Swanage Amphitheatre. Starting out with just a week's run at this spectacular site in the Prince Albert Gardens in 2012 we have since grown and our annual show now tours to various locations and theatres across the South of England. 

Adapting to each location, we hope to bring classic stories alive and enable audiences to come enjoy, learn and laugh at our work and the worlds we inhabit.

We bring to life classic texts adapted for four actors; producing energetic, fun and playful pieces of theatre. We want our audiences to be a part of storytelling that is enthralling and stimulating.

In 2017 SISATA returns to Shakespeare:  

Dorset born SISATA present Shakespeare’s ‘Othello’ in a bold, bright and brilliant explosion of a performance, giving you a feast for all your senses.

In a fast-paced telling of jealousy, love and ambition, four actors play multiple roles in this masterful debate on the human condition.

SISATA’s mission is to bring engaging and interactive performances of classic stories accessibly to modern audiences, highlighting the timeless issues that are presented.

Bursting with energy and sincerity, in true SISATA style, there will still be laughter and song to tie together this extraordinary play.

Testimonials: 

 ‘We came to your performance this afternoon (I was your letter reader!) and we loved it. We are both ex-English teachers who have taught the play many times and we were thrilled and amused in equal measure. Michael Dray's adaptation is excellent and your performances were both modern and funny. You handled the verse-speaking so naturalistically. 

We hope you go from strength to strength and we will take every opportunity to watch you.’

'I was amazed by the Amphitheatre; Dorset's very own Minnack in Swanage! I will definitely want to come again to that venue but particularly if this company is performing. They were lively and great to watch, and they made the whole show fun. A recommended afternoon out for the family!'
