The Soliloquies of Santiago is a scripted webseries created by RJ Lackie and produced by Cycle 66, loosely based on William Shakespeare's Othello. It premieres on YouTube on July 31 2015, and its Act One run (episodes 1-20) concluded on October 2 2015. In addition to scripted episodes, the series supplemented the story through an in-series Twitter account.

The Soliloquies of Santiago centres on Jacob Santiago, a theatre student at Canada's Elizabeth College vying for the role of Hamlet in his senior year. Backed by henchman Rodrigo Souza, he manipulates all those around him - including director Morgan Othello, fellow actors Des Omah and Mike "Cass" Cassio, and his own sister Emily Santiago - in order to secure the role he believes was unjustly denied him.
