Fortunes of the Moor

written and directed by Barbara and Carlton Molette

This parable of adoption and greed presents a new vision of Shakespeare's Othello. When Othello's African family arrive in Italy to claim the child of their son, they face treachery, racism, and a contentious custody battle. Clever plot twists combine with formal language to complement Shakespeare's story, offering a bold critique of the white culture that exploited and destroyed Othello and now threatens his son's life.

In conjunction with Pellom McDaniels, Curator, African American Collections, Rose Library.

Schwartz Theater Lab, Dobbs University Center
