A black man at the pinnacle of fame and power rejects the woman he loves under the influence of the man he thinks is his best friend. Davies introduces Dessie (Keeley Hawes) and Jago (Christopher Eccleston) as updated versions of Desdemona and Iago. The notorious handkerchief also appears in a new guise.
