Powerful, intriguing and timeless, Othello is one of Shakespeare’s most disturbing and schematic stories. This story centers around the devastating dominance of suspicion and character. This play revolves around four central characters: Othello, a general in the military world; his beloved wife, Desdemona; his loyal lieutenant, Cassio; and his trusted but ultimately unfaithful ensign, Iago. Othello is honorable and beloved for his talents, but is subjected to prejudice, jealousy and betrayal. Not to worry as he has the love of the Desdemona who loves and protects him unconditionally. Iago, Othello's loyal friend, gets passed over for promotion and an excruciating jealousy overcomes him and he conspires to undermine Othello's love for Desdmona.
