‘Othello’ Behind Bars

Fri, Aug 30, 2013 (10:43 a.m.)

Act I, Scene 1: Four actors in well-worn coveralls and baseball caps take the stage at the county jail. They’re here to tell a tale of love, friendship, jealousy and betrayal. It’s the stuff of Shakespearean tragedy. The names and themes haven’t changed over the centuries, but the language has a modern beat: “Othello never knew. He was getting schemed on by a member of his crew.”
