    Hayat Kamille offers an insight into playing Bianca in Othello

    One of Shakespeare’s most startlingly contemporary plays, Othello
    is a masterful depiction of a life torn apart by racism and the
    destructive nature of prejudice.

    Venice, a western colonial power, employs the newly-married
    Othello, a Muslim general, to lead their army against Turkish
    invasion. The difficulties of assimilating into a society riven by
    discrimination, fear and mistrust, soon begin to take their toll on
    Othello: manipulated by Iago, his life quickly unravels, and he turns
    on all he holds dear.

    A truly timeless play, Othello speaks afresh to each society that
    comes to it: a warning weaved within the fabric of the tragedy, more
    urgent than ever, compelling us to look beyond divisions of race,
    religion or culture and acknowledge our universal humanity.
