Zoom reading of Shakespeare's classic, presented by The Robey Theatre company.
Othello is the only one of Shakespeare’s plays to have a Black central character at its focus. The main characters include Othello, a celebrated Moorish general in the Venetian army; Desdemona, his beautiful and loyal Venetian wife; and Iago, his trusted but treacherous ensign. Themes include jealousy, envy, and racism, and how they threaten to destroy everyone in their path.
