Why See American Moor?


Award Winning Play

Written and performed by African-American actor Keith Hamilton-Cobb, American Moor is a stunning play that uses Shakespeare's Othello as a metaphor to explore the experience and attitudes of black men in America.

Intelligent, funny and heartbreaking, it is an 85 minute play in which the actor talks openly with the audience about race, interaction, theatre, and love. 

American Moor won the 2015 AUDELCO Award for Outstanding Solo Performance and has been recognised for its influence by the Folger Shakespeare Library which now holds a copy in its permanent collection.

Keith Hamilton-Cobb is best known for his role as Noah Keefer in All My Children (ABC), but has acted in many stage productions including Hamlet, Coriolanus, and David Mamet's Race.

This performance is followed by a post-performance discussion led by Michael Witmore, Director of the Folger Shakespeare Library.
