This powerful saga of love, jealousy and revenge is one of Shakespeare’s most poignant tragedies – a tale of prejudice, precipitating a great man’s fall into the barbarism of human nature.

“It’s too convenient to talk about it simply in terms of color. It has to do with a way of seeing the world—of perceiving the world vertically instead of horizontally, in terms of human relationships based on a hierarchy of good, better, and best, in which one human being has the power to decide the fate of another human being.”
–Avery Brooks (Othello) in An American Classic: Shakespeare Theatre Company
