Holloway’s Othello takes place at Venice College, an elite all-female PWI (predominantly white institution) collegiate academic institution. Despite the implications of systemic racism within the school, the brilliant Othello (NUBIA MONKS) excels both academically and socially. Her success triggers envy and uncovers the covert racism of her peers, especially that of her close friend and “ally” Iago (ZANDI CARLSON), who sets in motion a vile scheme to sabotage and destroy her.
