Black. Muslim. Outsider. These are the labels Shakespeare’s most famous Moor has carried with him as he’s climbed the military ranks. Having survived battle after battle in faraway lands, Othello’s greatest tragedy lies in those closest to him: his trusted friend, his beloved wife—and himself. In his Cal Shakes directorial debut, artistic director, Eric Ting, will face our society’s fear of “the other” head on with this provocative rendition of Othello.
