Wooden O: Othello
Various parks throughout the Puget Sound region
Newly married military commander Othello chooses young Cassio for a promotion instead of his lieutenant Iago. The stinging slight is noted, and soon Iago draws Othello into a web of half-truths and deceit to exact revenge. The lies about his new wife Desdemona prey on Othello until he can no longer determine what is true or false. The pressure to relieve his intense doubt leads to a dangerous and lethal assault that destroys not only his marriage, but everything around him.
