Photo Flash: Cincinnati Shakespeare presents OTHELLO

Although a Moor and an outsider in Venice, Othello's military prowess has earned him the respect of many - and the seething animosity of one. Othello's long-time underling Iago is resentful of the Moor's success, and when Othello elopes with a Venetian's daughter, Iago sets in motion a devious plot to exact revenge.

With an insinuation here, a whisper there, and the duplicitous deployment of a purloined handkerchief, he masterfully plays on the virtues and vulnerabilities of those around him, weaving with Machiavellian glee "the net that shall enmesh them all."
