Summary
The author brings Othello to a 1970's elementary school playground. Osei (O) is the new boy in the sixth grade and is the only black student in school. Desdemona (Dee) is assigned to help him adjust to his new surroundings on his first day. Quickly they become a "couple" on the playground.
Critique
So much happens on that playground in one day. Kids play; kids fall in love; kids get hurt. It's difficult to imagine 11 year old's experiencing so much of life in just one day.
