RemarkaBULL Podversations are informal, livestreamed conversations that investigate approaches to essential passages from the Shakespearean and Jacobean canona??and beyond.

Celebrated Shakespearean actor and Tony Award-nominee Patrick Page will join host Nathan Winkelstein, Red Bull's Associate Artistic Director, for a conversation focused on Iago's "I hate the Moor" speech from the first act of Shakespeare's Othello.

He'll read passages from the play and discuss his approach to the text and character. They'll take questions through Facebook LIVE and YouTube. Red Bull will also be welcoming a few individuals to appear as part of the broadcast. Members of the public that would like to ask a question and have the opportunity to appear should submit this form by Friday, October 2 at Noon EDT.
