Othello in the 21st Century: To Perform or Not To Perform?

Othello is the best-known black character in Shakespeare's plays, a traditional role of dignity for black actors. But racial stereotypes of the 17th century create some discomfort among 21st century audiences. This lecture, co-sponsored with the Shakespeare Festival, will explore historical and contemporary performances of the play in light of this discomfort.

George Washington University Professor Thompson specializes in Renaissance drama and focuses on issues of race and performance. She is currently working on a co-authored book tentatively called Shakespeare on Purpose, and a single-authored book on Shakespeare and revenge. She is also writing the new introduction to the Arden Othello.
