“O god that men should put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains”
Othello is incredibly talented and successful. But he remains an outsider in his city, subject to racism, jealousy and suspicion. Only Desdemona treats him with respect and kindness: they fall passionately in love. His best friend, Iago, watches Othello’s life flourish with unbearable jealousy and plots to destroy him completely.
As Othello’s world disintegrates into chaos, consumed by a poisonous cocktail of jealousy and rage, he turns on the only person in the world who wants to save him.
