Othello. 4.1. 162-168. Bianca gets upset by Cassio giving her a handkerchief, which she knows it belongs to another woman.

When performing a character’s tone and volume, first things first, we need to bring passion and soul into the text. Emphasize critical words. Put yourself in that situation to see how you are going to react to it. Don’t perform continuously; give yourself a short break from 1 to 3 seconds between lines to catch the attention of the audience if needed. Take time for rehearsal, keep practicing over and over.

Bianca was heartbroken with displeasure.
