[edit] Information

Chapter 1: Hugh Quarshie Remembers Hugh Quarshie looks back on his highly praised interpretation of Othello in the Royal Shakespeare Company's 2015 production, directed by Iqbal Khan. He considers the extra responsibility a black actor must take on with a role that for centuries was played only by white performers wearing make-up. He recalls how he made the decision to join the cast after years of turning the play down and examines the frequently asked question 'Is Othello a racist play?', drawing on his experiences playing the Moor of Venice for his own conclusion. Chapter 2: Othello 2015 Othello is the greatest general of his age. But he is also an outsider whose victories have created enemies of his own. As they plot in the shadows, Othello realises too late that the greatest danger lies not in the hatred of others, but his own fragile and destructive pride. With Hugh Quarshie as Othello and Joanna Vanderham as Desdemona, Iqbal Khan's groundbreaking 2015 production was the first by the Royal Shakespeare Company to cast a black actor, Lucian Msamati, as Iago.
