Every year Townsville-based theatre company TheatreiNQ stage ‘Shakespeare under the stars’ in Townsville’s glorious Queen’s Park; a short walk from the beachside promenade, the Strand, and in the shadow of Townsville landmark, Castle Hill.

Othello is my favorite Shakespeare play. The way the text handles the problems of jealousy, trust, and sexual obsession make it a consistent port of call when thinking about anything related to the complexity and danger of human desire.
