Othello

by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Directed by ETHAN MCSWEENY

If truth has lost its meaning, how long can love survive?  Evil is everywhere in Shakespeare’s great tragedy of racism and jealousy, as the love of Othello and Desdemona is destroyed by envy and fact is twisted by innuendo.  You’ll find yourself on the edge of your seat as the deadly machinations unfold.

Dr. Ralph Presents: 'Then Must You Speak'

AN EXPLORATION OF RACE AND SHAKESPEARE This series will bring together scholars and artists for probing conversations about race and Shakespeare in order to grow our understanding of the many ways in which "classical" theatre and how we pursue it in America exposes and intersects with issues of social justice, systemic racism, equity, and the perpetuation of White supremacy culture while simultaneously offering a lens through which to imagine and embody positive change.

Each Friday at 5 PM
