About this show

San Francisco's African-American Shakespeare Company closes its 15th season with a thrilling interpretation of William Shakespeare's Othello. Told simultaneously from three (Othello, Desdemona, and Iago) points of view, this compelling story re-sets one of The Bard's greatest tragedies during a military tribunal in Iraq, where race and sexual politics become the driving force for jealousy and revenge. African-American Shakespeare Company Executive Director Sherri Young helms this modern take on love undone by jealousy. This production is part of the Shake-It-Up program and is supported by a special National Endowment for the Arts initiative with Arts Midwest's "Shakespeare for a New Generation."
