For daws to peck at: I am not what I am.
Othello, 1. 1
[Director Arin Arbus] gets out of Shakespeare’s way, in other words, but this is only the reward of much intelligent care and hard work. You get the sense that each moment in the play has been thought through, line by line and even step by step, with the result that every scene achieves its purpose with a trenchant simplicity.
