Any modern production of Othello raises questions, and hackles. The play’s almost unbearable emotional power is entangled for any audience—both Shakespeare’s and our own—with the sometimes intractable social and historical questions of race, religion, gender, and more. In Public Shakespeare Presents: SPEAK OF ME AS I AM: OTHELLO ON STAGE, a lively, in-depth discussion with selected readings from the play by a panel of scholars and artists will grapple with the fraught heart and history of this deeply challenging, astonishing and enduring work. Has its troubled production history rendered it unplayable—or indeed, unwatchable—for a contemporary audience? Or is the play more moving, more disturbing, and more essential than ever? Panelists will include Columbia's James Shapiro, George Washington University's Ayanna Thompson and the director of this summer's Delacorte production, Ruben Santiago-Hudson.
