|About the Play
Othello, a Moorish general of the Venetian army, has just married the lovely Desdemona, but the conniving and envious soldier, Iago, is bitter at Othello for having been passed over for advancement. What follows is one of Shakespeare’s most famous stories of deceit, revenge, and the tragic events that occur when the truth is manipulated for selfish means.
|About the Playwright
William Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist.He is often called England's national poet, and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including collaborations, consist of approximately 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. Learn more at Wikipedia.org
