BECOMING OTHELLO is a personal, poignant and powerful story of perseverance, tragedy, triumph—and ultimately unconditional love.

Richmond Shakespeare Festival in Richmond Indiana presents BECOMING OTHELLO: A Black Girl's Journey, written & performed by Debra Ann Byrd, Founding Artistic Director of New York's Harlem Shakespeare Festival.

BECOMING OTHELLO is a personal, poignant and powerful story of perseverance, tragedy, triumph-and ultimately unconditional love. A victory story of making it against all odds.

Through rhyme, meter, moving multimedia images, lyrical language, and soulful songs, this choreo-poem chronicles the life of classical actress, Debra Ann Byrd; her trials and triumphs with race and the classics; and her gender-flipped journey on the road to becoming Shakespeare's noble flawed general Othello.
