Jeremy Kyle Othello Script Essay
Jeremy Kyle: On today’s Jeremy Kyle show, we have a man that is desperately trying not to be convinced his wife is cheating on him with his good friend and colleuge. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Othello![OTHELLO WALKS ONTO SET]J.
K: Hi there Othello. Now you’ve known Micheal Cassio, the man your wife, Desdemona is allegedly cheating with, for a number of years now, is that right? He even accompanied you when you first started seeing Desdemona?Othello: He did form first to last.
Why dost thou ask?J.K: Oh, just the fact that if he was with you when you were “wooing” her, that means he now knows her pretty well then?Othello: O yes, and went between us very oft.
J.K: Oh really…
?Othello: Dicern’st thou aught in that? Is he not honest?J.K: Well…
no of course he’s honest. If you trust him, he MUST be honest.Othello: By heaven he echoes me, as if there were some monster in his thought too hideous to be shown.
K: Oh no, no, no. By all means I’m sure Cassio is an honest man and can be trusted 100%.Othello: I think so too.J.
K: But just do me a favour ok? Watch your wife with Cassio. Keep your eye out, so if ever something DOES happen, you’ll see. Remember, she did lie to her father to get married to you, what’s to stop her doing it again?Othello: And so she did.J.
K: You see? It’s possible!Othello: Why did I marry? This honest creature doubtless sees and knows more, much more, than he unfolds.J.K: All I’m saying is that you’ve had a number of people, including your friend Iago, telling you of this affair, but you’ve always trusted Desdemona, but you need to see that there is a possibility that she could be decieving you.Othello: If I do prove her haggard, though that her jesses were my dear heart-strings, I’d whistle her off and let her down the wind to prey at fortune.
Haply for I am black, and have not those soft parts of conversation that chamberers have, or for I am declin’d into the vale of years – yet that’s not much – she’s gone, I am abus’d, and my relief must be to loathe her. O curseof marriage, that we can call these delicate creatures ours and not their appetites!J.K: On that note, I think it’s time to end there. All I have to say to you the viewers, is that marriage is a sacred bond between two people.
If you feel like that bond has been broken, don’t try and fight for it if it’s not worth it. Let it go. Or come on my show and I’ll sort out your problems! See you next time!
