A play about tolerance, respect and patriotism...
Two half-African, half-European actors meet, at auditions for the role of Othello.. Both are children of immigrants, and both are looking for their identity - split between two continents and cultures. When is the colour of our skin a problem? And when it is an advantage? The answer is hard to define - as hard as the role of Othello, which for our characters is a dream, but also a curse.
Waiting for Othello is a comedy, with roots in Shakespeare, Beckett and clowning.
The questions which appear during the play, are born from the search for a truth...because only truth can liberate us.
