Running off-Broadway in 2019, Keith Hamilton Cobb’s American Moor is the award-winning, tour-de-force new play that takes audiences behind-the-scenes and into the audition room as an African-American actor responds to the demands of a white director presuming to better understand Shakespeare’s iconic black character, Othello.
A passionate and poetic exploration, American Moor is an essential look at the experience and perspective of black men in America while challenging the capacity of theatre to make all people fully visible and embraced.
