Give Your Backing To This Unique Othello Production!

Okay, it’s not Doctor Who, but bear with us a moment. Friend of Kasterborous and editor of the immense Vworp Vworp! magazines Gareth Kavanagh is in the middle of producing an unusual new interpretation of Othello, and we reckon that those of you with a love of William Shakespeare might just want to find out more. So what’s different about it?

Shakespeare’s OTHELLO set in Venezia FC; a football club. Is there a better setting to explore jealousy, lust and reputation in 2014?

We thought that might raise a few eyebrows! The aim is to raise £895 to help cover costs of the production, which promises to be unique.

Click the video above to find out more, and then feast your eyes on the list of rewards on the Kickstarter page, which are designed by our Vworp Vworp!‘s very own Colin Brockhurst. Meanwhile, the rewards featuring the image of The Lass are based on the luscious Princess Tayinn of Absolm Daak fame – a tenuous Doctor Who link, but a link nonetheless!

Gareth’s company Lass Productions has been spun off out of the now sadly-departed Doctor Who friendly Lass O’Gowrie pub in Manchester but is essentially the same team that put together various live performances of classics such as Withnail & I, Coronation Street 1977 and even Russell T Davies’ Midnight (starring a chap not called the Doctor) among many others.

It’s Shakespeare. In a football club. Staged in one of Europe’s greatest football citadels, Manchester. It excites us as an idea and we’re sure audiences will agree!

It excites Kasterborous, too. We’re backing Othello, and the Kickstarter is already up to £139, closing on Monday, August 4th, so act now – you can pledge anything from £2 to £795!
