"I see Iago as Shakespeare's most graphic representation of Satan on earth and Desdemona as the closest thing to Christ on earth. Othello is a man caught in the middle, between good and evil. He seeks good but finds evil." Bruce Matthews talks about his production of Othello " It shows us love displayed in all it's aspects, with all its warts revealed. It's the age old story of a person striving for perfection and falling from grace, pulled down and ravaged by the green- eyed monster."
