The Othello Project is a TDPS workshop (work-in-progress) written and directed by undergraduate Madison Wackerman.

The Othello Project is a devised piece consisting of student experiences, references to the text, and character investigation to examine harmful societal tropes in the white patriarchy in Shakespeare’s Othello that persist today. This piece uses personal accounts and contemporary references to contextualize Shakespeare’s “classic” play in modern America, exploring present-day intersectionality of race and gender. Please join us as we present and discuss this collaborative investigative piece.
