American Moor is a 90-minute solo play written and performed by Keith Hamilton Cobb. The play examines the experience and perspective of black men in America through the metaphor of William Shakespeare’s character, Othello. American Moor is not an “angry black man play,” but rather a play that addresses race in America, the nature of unadulterated love, privilege and American theatre.
Keith Hamilton Cobb is an actor and playwright who has spent the majority of his working life on stage and in television. American Moor is his song to the unheard, unseen other.
The play will be followed by a discussion, moderated by Professor Faedra Carpenter, UMD School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies.
