Othello is a timeless masterpiece that delves into themes of love, jealousy, and the human experience. To ensure an authentic and diverse portrayal of this classic, we are actively seeking actors who identify as Black, African American, or of Moorish descent to audition and bring their unique perspective to the stage to tell their story.
Iago, a Venetian soldier and ensign, is passed over for promotion by Othello, a Moorish nobleman who has reached the pinnacle of his career: he is general of the Venetian army and has secretly married Desdemona, daughter of an important statesman in Venice. Partly to be avenged for this slight and partly because of his dark nature, Iago has determined to destroy Othello’s happiness.
Written by William Shakespeare
