7.30pm, Wednesdays to Saturdays, at St Saviour’s Church, Walton Place, London SW3 1SA

This modern re-telling of Shakespeare’s Othello is being revived as part of Intermission Youth Theatre’s 10th anniversary celebrations.

Exploring the themes of jealousy, manipulation and revenge, Ring of Envy tells the story of Othello, a highly esteemed boxer at ‘The Ring Youth Club’. The Championships are fast approaching and Othello chooses Michael Cassio – over his ambitious best friend Iago – to be his corner man. This sends Iago into a rage of jealousy. And so begins an evil and malicious campaign against Othello which leads to tragic ends.

For the first time, the cast will be made up of existing Youth Theatre members and graduates.

We are thrilled that award-winning actress Naomie Harris has become a Patron of Intermission, alongside Oscar-winning actor Mark Rylance.

Naomie, who played Eve Moneypenny in the James Bond films Skyfall and Spectre and received critical acclaim for her performance in last year’s film Moonlight, was blown away by IYT’s production of Double Trouble!

“I think the work Intermission does is phenomenal and I am so impressed by the amount of talent and commitment from the members,” she said.

Our Artistic Director Darren Raymond says, “We are thrilled that Naomie is supporting us in this, our tenth anniversary of IYT. She is a fantastic role model, offering inspiration to our young people.”
