  • Act 1
  • Act 1 begins with Iago and Roderigo discussing Roderigo's suit to Desdemona. Iago informs Roderigo that Desdemona married Othello. Iago hates Othello because Othello did not promote him as he had wished. Roderigo and Iago decide to go and tell Desdemona's father that she has married Othello.
  • Roderigo, Desdemona is in love with Othello! Because I hate Otello, let's tell her father!
  • But I love Desdemona, hmph!
  • Roderigo and Iago yell up to Brabantio's window, saying that his daughter has wronged him. Brabantio comes down to spek to them, when they tell him that Othello and Desdemona. Brabantio asks to be taken to see Othello.
  • Brabantio, your daughter married Othello!
  • Bring me the Moor!
  • Iago goes to warn Othello that Brabantio is coming for him and gives him the opportunity to run, but Othello chooses to stay. Brabantio and Roderigo enter and Brabantio begins insulting Othello because he does not want him married to his daughter.
  • Othello, Brabantio is coming! You must go!
  • No, I will stay.
  • How dare you marry my daughter, you Moor!
  • The Duke requested Othello's presence in Cyrpus to help with the war but Brabantio still wants to discuss with Othello. Othello tells them how and wy Desdemona loves him, as they believe he wooed her into loving him. The Duke is on Othello's side and they come to the conclusion that it is okay for Othello to be sent to Cyprus.
  • You could not have wooed my daughter!
  • That would woo me too!!
  • I love her and she loves me and we love each other.
  • Roderigo and Iago stay behind to talk and Roderigo begins to complain about how he does not have Desdemona because of Othello. Iago tells Roderigo to invest in some money and save up because Desdemona will grow weary of Othello and will want a younger, richer man like Roderigo.
  • Put some money in your purse and get it together!
  • Why doesn't she love me? I'm so alone!
