Performance Notes

× Written & Directed by Djanet Sears

A rhapsodic blues tragedy, this prequel to Shakespeare’s Othello weaves a rich tapestry of love, revenge, loyalty, and madness over three distinct time periods. Othello’s first wife, Billie, discovers that her husband has abandoned both their marriage and Harlem for Mona, a white colleague from the Upper West Side. For Billie, the betrayal is not only personal but has profound implications that resonate across two centuries.
