In the wake of the 'Black Lives Matter' campaign, people from formerly under-represented groups have been elevated into positions of power and responsibility. Most of us accept that for too long, able bodied white men have had an unfair advantage but not everyone agrees with positive discrimination. Iago, an experienced soldier passed over for promotion in favour of Cassius, plots to wreak dreadful revenge on his commanding officer Colonel Othello.
Written and Directed by Ian Dixon Potter
Performed by Neil Summerville
Videography by Howard White
Original music composed by Neil Thompson
Inspired by Othello by William Shakespeare
There is, strangely, something nearly admirable about the dedication and zeal into which he puts its plotting and scheming. Summerville’s portrayal is so successful at painting a portrait of a man so totally devoid of civility towards fellow humans.
