In a nutshell

Shakespeare’s intimate tragedy lands in the Torres Strait

1942, and the Imperial Japanese Navy is bearing south. The bold Captain Othello and his battalion of the Far North Queensland Regiment are all that stands in their way. But off the battlefield, Othello’s life is far from simple. He’s just secretly married the daughter of a wealthy cane farmer, and an envious, spurned suitor has joined forces with a disloyal and resentful officer in a deadly plot to bring down the renowned military hero, at any cost.

William Shakespeare’s classic tale of jealousy, betrayal and revenge is thrillingly re-imagined by Jason Klarwein.
