With penetrating psychological insight, Shakespeare's most emotionally intense tragedy explores the destructive effects of jealousy, racism, class resentment, gender inequality, and the tragic human truth that we can never truly know what another person is thinking.

Godfrey is a 2012 recipient of a Fox Foundation Fellowship for Distinguished Achievement and has nearly 25 years of experience as an actor.
