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.

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.
