OTHELLO by William Shakespeare

Ambimbola is destined to win the lottery. Natalia is born with the gift of magic. Helen can’t get over the loss of her daughter. Reid just wants to retire. Rozie is desperate to make a quick buck. Dan dies young, but is he really gone? Six lives collide after a tragic car accident, forcing each to confront the secrets, hopes and fears that consume them, and helping them to find love, strength and forgiveness through a mysterious baby that glows like the moon.
A dark and fantastical comedy about sad endings, strange beginnings and the unlikely people that get you from one place to the next.
