The Last Othello

By Robert Joseph Ahola

Genre: A Drama in One Act
Runtime (Min/Max): 45 - 50 Minutes
Cast: (Male/Female/Other): 1/2/

Synopsis: Paul Robeson and Uta Hagen who once headlined the longest running Shakespeare ever on Broadway, and who spent a large portion of their careers on "The HUAC Blacklist," meet 20 years later, just before Robeson's last performance of Othello at Stratford-on-Avon. A poignant portrait of the most powerful influence for political change in the history of Black America, The Last Othello gives a shattering insight into Paul Robeson in his later years - a Promethean actor, singer and activist who ultimately became a casualty to his own courage and unwillingness to bend.
