I dunno. I know it's supposed to be all serious and tragic and all, but except for the costumes, it could be a demonstration of how to clear someone's throat before applying mouth to mouth resuscitation.

#1 in a new series: "Flora Elkins Saved From Drowning."

I saw Jones play Othello in a later touring production with Christopher Plummer as Iago.

At the time I was excited because Jones was the voice of Darth Vader.
