Coming of Age, Drama
Shakespeare’s Othello is relocated to an American high-school in this compelling drama. Odin James is the black star of the otherwise all white basketball team, heading for stardom and in love with Desi, the most popular girl in school. Meanwhile Hugo, the team coach’s son, feels outshone by Odin both on court and in his relationship with his father, feeling bitterly envious of his teammate. This jealousy gradually builds up until it explodes in tragic circumstances. This intelligent, accessible interpretation of the play highlights how its themes remain as all too relevant to aspects of modern society as they were 400 years ago.
