It's not just fate working against the celebrity marriage of pop stars Othello and Desdemona. Iago, a frustrated member of Othello's boy band "Venice," thinks he deserves more power in the group -- so he sets out on a mission to advance himself and destroy Othello's marriage by whatever means necessary. All he needs is a little whiskey, a small handkerchief, a temperamental wannabe Latino solo artist, and a whole lot of jealousy, in this laugh-out-loud ridiculous parody of Shakespeare's original. (A one-act version of this play is also available.)
