James Hayman A Fatal Obsession

Tyler Bradshaw never knew what might trigger it. A tone of voice. A look. Tonight he could feel it starting to build just seconds after he’d begun walking down the center aisle of the small McArthur/Weinstein Community Theater on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Having attended all eleven previous performances in this limited-run production of Othello, Tyler knew exactly where he wanted to sit for tonight’s finale. A12. On the aisle. Front row. Right-hand side. By far the best seat in the house in terms of offering him the most intimate view of the death of Zoe McCabe, the young actress cast in the role of Desdemona.

This would be Tyler’s last chance to watch the woman he wanted so desperately, the woman for months who’d been haunting his dreams, at the hands of Randall Carter, met her death, the well-known black actor who was playing Othello the Moor. However, if all went according to plan, this closing night would become opening night for a much more intimate relationship.
