On a Southern plantation, Shakespeare holds the fate of several black slaves in his hands. Among them are the rebellious Aaron and the obedient Othello, both of whom share an interest in Shakespeare’s unwed daughter. But a vital secret remains hidden that could untangle complex familial ties and change the course of their history.

Trinidadian born. Scarborough raised. Joseph is a York University graduate with a BFA in acting. His first works were independently produced projects. Born Ready and Pusha-Man marked his mainstream introduction to the Toronto theatre scene. His goal as a writer has always been to inject the life experiences and culture around him into his work. To reflect the images and struggles of a people that rarely see themselves on stage, yet whose stories are as valued as any other.

"…the play's characters are always passionate, almost operatic in their feelings; the script often has the heat of a blowtorch." —NOW Magazine
