The lines I chose from Othello is Act 3, Scene 3, lines 368-378. The character I played was Iago. Tone and inflection play a huge part in understanding not only the surface text and what is actually being said, but the subtext as well, why the character says these things. It’s no secret that Iago manipulates people to get what he wants, but performing this passage made me really understand the full extent of unease the character gives.
