Having stood up to her father, Othello’s new wife, Desdemona, joins them on the military campaign unknowingly putting her love and life into a web of lies and mistrust.  Far from home, in a time where men value their reputations more than their deeds, will Iago seize the opportunity to diet his revenge.
