What aspect or general themes from Giraldi Cinthio's 1565 "Hecatommithi" might make an interesting stage play for Shakespeare's adaptation?
It would be interesting to see the Moor and the Ensign plotting to kill Disdemona and the captain. It would be interesting to see the way they choose to do it and compare it to the way the did it in the movie O. It would also be interesting because its the Moor plotting the killing rather than the Ensign or Hugo in the movie.

Predict: How will Othello die? Suicide or Torture?
I think Othello will commit suicide rather than be killed by his wife's family as it happens in Hecatommithi.
