Theatre TJC continues its 2019-2020 season with William Shakespeare’s “Othello,” under the direction of Denise Weatherly-Green, TJC theater professor.

Undeterred by the differences in their backgrounds and life experiences, Othello and Desdemona defy prejudice to be united in marriage. However, deadly malice lurks where the newlyweds least expect it, as the man Othello trusts the most resolves to destroy their happiness at any cost.

Whispers of suspicion feed irrational jealousy in this gripping psychological drama, one of Shakespeare’s greatest and best-known tragedies.

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, Feb. 19-22; with a matinee at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, in Jean Browne Theatre.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors, students, and active military.

The TJC Box Office opens Wednesday, Feb. 12, and box office hours are 1-6 p.m. weekdays. For reservations, call 903-510-2212.
