About the Play 
An aging and disenchanted professor whose career is on the wane agrees to tutor the university president’s son, Murph, who is floundering in his freshman English course and in his life. A chasm of difference lies between teacher and student, yet as they explore Othello together, both draw new strength from Shakespeare’s extraordinary insights.
