Act III: The Moor of Venice. Thirteen: Bold and Saucy Wrongs. Fourteen: A World of Sighs. Venice has been an independent republic for five hundred years, governed by an elected senate of 480 men, who in turn elect a doge, who, advised by a high council of six senators, oversees the senate, the military, and civil appointments. Senators come mostly from Venice’s powerful merchant class, and until recently could be elected, by neighborhood, from any walk of life. But the system that has made Venice the richest and most powerful maritime nation in the world has changed.
DRAMATIS PERSONAE (Persons Represented): DUKE OF VENICE. BRABANTIO, a Senator. GRATIANO, Brother to Brabantio. LODOVICO, Kinsman to Brabantio. OTHELLO, a noble Moor, in the service of Venice. CASSIO, his Lieutenant. RODERIGO, a Venetian Gentleman. MONTANO, Othello's predecessor in the government of Cyprus. Clown, servant to Othello. DESDEMONA, Daughter to Brabantio, and Wife to Othello. EMILIA, Wife to Iago. BIANCA, Mistress to Cassio.
Fans of Fool will be overjoyed to rejoin Pocket and company. for their latest adventure, and newcomers will find that Shakespeare isn’t nearly as dry and dusty as they thought, at least not when Moore is at the helm. Moore excels at comedic writing and the Serpent of Venice does not disappoint, although I must confess that Serpent isn't nearly as strong as some of Moore's other offerings in my opinion (such as Lamb or Bloodsucking Fiends).

Before Brabantio reaches Othello, news arrives in Venice that the Turks are going to attack Cyprus; therefore Othello is summoned to advise the senators. Brabantio arrives and accuses Othello of seducing Desdemona by witchcraft, but Othello defends himself successfully before an assembly that includes the Duke of Venice, Brabantio's kinsmen Lodovico and Gratiano, and various senators.
