In Venice, all it takes to destroy a man is a stolen handkerchief. With this keepsake lifted from Desdemona, Othello's sweet-tempered fiancée—plus a few whispered rumors—the conniving Iago unravels the life of his superior officer. Even before the inevitable bloodbath, Shakespeare riddles his work with questions about the nature of evil, gut-churning depictions of jealousy, and the first known use of the phrase “green-eyed monster” to describe a Shrek.

About Lincoln Performance Hall
In a sense, Portland State's Department of Theatre and Film is at the very center of the university. Its stately home, Lincoln Hall, was the first building erected on campus, in 1911. 475 plush seats curve around the stage of Lincoln Performance Hall inside, built with lots of leg room and a steep incline that insures excellent visibility even during plays cast with the tiniest of actors. The theater underwent a total renovation in 2010, and in addition to the visible facelift, backstage improvements now allow the department to mount even more elaborate productions.
