Othello is Shakespeare’s tragic tale of race, love, jealousy, and betrayal. Othello is a Moorish general in a mostly white army and has just married a beautiful white woman. But if Iago, one of his soldiers, has his way, Othello will lose everything. Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War, Theatre Kraken’s production of Othello is scored with original music in the style of traditional spiritual songs, and reminds us that we have not come as far from the race issues of Shakespeare’s time as we would like to think we have.
