HOW THIS SERIES CAME ABOUT:
This series is a follow-up series to the online benefit production of “Othello Falling” that R. Paul Saradanas and i performed in the fall of 2001.
The talented R. Paul Saradanas created a new adaptation of the classic Shakespeare play, of which, he transformed to a two-person spoken word
format. He tailored the production into something that could raise awareness and insight into the issue of abuse in our society.
