Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan: Othello

We drove up to Saskatoon for the preview performance of Othello at the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival. The performance was excellent with the play adapted to contemporary day with Othello rewritten as Cree. It was very respectful - perhaps too respectful. I think it could have pushed the controversial aspects of it further. Of course I have no images of the performance, but they always have these corny photo things in the reception garden outside. Weather was hot, we stayed in a nice cool hotel. On our way there, we met a guy from norther Saskatchewan on the street who was trying to find a place to eat on his birthday, having been displaced due to the heavy smoke this week. Margaret gave him some and we had a great chat.
