Shakespeare:  Surely I have lost control; but I did love you Aaron.  I created you all, loved you all.

Aaron:  Then, why was my tongue tied so tight?

Two iconic black characters in Shakespeare’s work are brought to life in this visionary play.  The piece takes you on a journey into the hearts and minds of Othello and Titus Andronicus’s Aaron as they confront their creator.  This play is subversive and poetic.  It will dare you to see Shakespeare in a whole new light.
