From a play: Othello by William Shakespeare

Composer: Jeff Danna

Keywords: Drama, Basketball

Modernized version of William Shakespeare's Othello follows the saga of high school basketball phenomenon Odin James.

Retelling of Othello. Odin James is the African-American pride of his staggeringly Caucasian boarding school's basketball squad, earning attention from coach Duke Goulding far outstripping that afforded to his own son and player Hugo. Hugo's jealousy towards Odin and his blossoming romance with coveted female classmate Desi leads the success-obsessed man down a destructive path as he looks to destroy Odin's happy life at any cost.
