RemarkaBULL Podversations are informal, livestreamed conversations that investigate approaches to essential passages from the Shakespearean and Jacobean canon―and beyond.
On Monday, June 8, Tony Award-nominee PATRICK PAGE will join host NATHAN WINKELSTEIN, Red Bull’s Associate Producer, for a conversation focused on Iago’s speeches from Shakespeare’s Othello. Page performed this role opposite Avery Brooks in 2005 at The Shakespeare Theatre Company under the direction of Michael Kahn. He’ll read passages from the play and discuss his approach to the text and character. They’ll take questions through Facebook LIVE, too.

EXCERPT FROM OTHELLO | Act 1 | Scene 3
Thus do I ever make my fool my purse:
For I mine own gain'd knowledge should profane,
If I would time expend with such a snipe.
But for my sport and profit. I hate the Moor:
And it is thought abroad, that 'twixt my sheets
He has done my office: I know not if't be true;
But I, for mere suspicion in that kind,
Will do as if for surety. He holds me well;
The better shall my purpose work on him.
Cassio's a proper man: let me see now:
To get his place and to plume up my will
In double knavery--How, how? Let's see:--
After some time, to abuse Othello's ear
That he is too familiar with his wife.
He hath a person and a smooth dispose
To be suspected, framed to make women false.
The Moor is of a free and open nature,
That thinks men honest that but seem to be so,
And will as tenderly be led by the nose
As asses are.
I have't. It is engender'd. Hell and night
Must bring this monstrous birth to the world's light.
