Comment:        Re: SHK 10.1602 Re: White Othellos

Does anyone know of any productions or adaptations of Othello in which
the colors were reversed, making Othello a white mercenary in a black
kingdom, such as the one described by Aphra Behn in Oroonoko and
recently adapted by 'Biyi Bandele for the RSC?  Seems an obvious move
but nothing comes to my probably disfunctional mind.
