I choose the play Othello. Act 2 scene 3 lines 325-334

The character I played was Iago. What I learned is that I had to stop stopping because it sounding like I was reading. Also looking at examples of the videos showed me that it was a certain time to get loud and when to slow it down and stop. In my own rehearsal it was somewhat of a struggle trying to sound just like Iago in Shakespeare’s time but practicing over and over made me feel comfortable when the oral performance came. I understood that Iago was very enthusiastic into what he was saying when he was explaining winning the moor would be easy.
