Act 1 Stage should be set up with screen at the back of the stage with projector. Props should be located behind the screen. During the production, all actors will mime words as they appear on the screen. Additionally, player piano music should be audible during the production. A note on this production: For the sake of storyline preservation, the character known as “Duke of Venice” will henceforth be referred to as “President of Union” or “Worker Union President” Scene 1 Enter Iago and Roderigo Roderigo shouts angrily, waving his arms, stomping, etc. Iago "The idiot Michael Cassio has been chosen over me." Iago rants about losing the job. Roderigo also rants about his hatred of Othello. Iago motions agreement with Roderigo and consoles him Roderigo “Then why do you still work for him?” Iago “I want to get even. Let’s go bring Othello’s future father-in-law the bad news.” Iago and Roderigo leave for Brabantio’s house. Brabantio’s Home Brabantio waves arms at Iago and Brabantio pushes Roderigo away from the house Roderigo “You have been robbed.” Iago “As we speak, the Irish brute is with your daughter.” Brabantio “Villain.” Roderigo kneels offering himself up to Brabantio showing his loyalty. Brabantio goes inside to look for Desdemona--stomping. Iago disappears to the darkness to visit Othello. Iago exits. Brabantio returns in a panic horrified. Brabantio gestures to the other characters in a rage shouting at everyone including himself for Desdemona’s disappearance. Brabantio gestures to the neighbors and servants to follow him on a quest to find Othello. Roderigo leads the pack of gathering servants and neighbors. All exit. Iago and Othello enter.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
