Othello- The African American Shakespeare

  • Apr 11, 2010 · 3:00 PM

Hell hath no fury like a black woman scorned. Rejected in a relationship and overlooked on a promotion, Iago sets on the ultimate revenge to destroy Othello's career and life. Told simultaneously from three (Othello, Desdemona, and Iago) points of view, African-American Shakespeare Company sets OTHELLO, one of The Bard’s greatest tragedies, during a modern-day military tribunal in Iraq, where race and sexual politics become the driving force for jealousy and revenge. Desdemona is courted by Othello, denounced by her father, greeted by her new husband, who then inexplicably turns on her. Reset. Othello courts Desdemona, pours his heart out about how and why they fell in love, then notices his wife flirting with another man. Reset. It becomes clear - Iago has been the evil backbone behind it all. Directed by: Sherri Young If you are interested in going, please make a payment for the tickets by next Monday March 8.
