Shakespeare hits the new millenium in this teen-friendly update to Othello. In essence a devious tale of ''eliminate my enemies so that daddy will notice me'', in which a basketball coach's son aims to eliminate the star player, who happens to be the only black in the school. Daddy seems to prefer the black star to his own son, which causes him to set his plan in motion, using friends as mere pawns in a game which turns increasingly violent. He manages to use his jealousy to arouse similar feelings amongst the others, pushing them into drastic action.

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Well, I didn't know the story beforehand, but can now see why it is such a popular Shakespeare piece. It is beautifully plotted, with complex characters. The transposition to the modern era works well, and while not as crowd-pleasing as Ten Things I Hate About You (tragedy as opposed to rom-com), it is easily as well done.
