  • Overview

    Sweet Tea Shakespeare is excited to bring its hit drunk Shakespeare production, OthelLIT, on tour throughout the North Carolina Sandhills. This one-of-a-kind performance series takes classic works of literature and puts a unique twist on them by performing them with plenty of adult beverages in hand and plenty of audience interaction.

    OthelLIT is based on William Shakespeare’s tragedy Othello. The play tells the story of the great general Othello, who is manipulated by his evil lieutenant Iago into believing that his wife Desdemona has been unfaithful. The result is a tragic tale of jealousy, betrayal, and revenge.

    Sweet Tea Shakespeare aims to make Shakespeare accessible to everyone, and what better way to do that than by performing one of his most famous works while encouraging the audience to drink along? OthelLIT will be touring various locations throughout the region, so check out the schedule below and come raise a glass to the Bard!

    LIT Performances are for adults, as they blend stripped-down Shakespeare plays with improv, games, and a relaxed, pub-like environment.
