We will be showing Othello live from the National Theatre, London on Thursday 26th September. Please note that this date is now sold out and an encore screening date will be confirmed nearer the time but likely to be Saturday 28th September.
The National Theatre presents a major new production of William Shakespeare’s celebrated play about the destructive power of jealousy.
Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at the National Theatre, BBC’s Hustle) takes the title role. Playing opposite him as the duplicitous Iago is fellow Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear (The Last of the Haussmans, James Bond: Skyfall), who is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner (Timon of Athens, One Man, Two Guv’nors) following their acclaimed collaboration on the National Theatre’s recent production of Hamlet.
Othello, newly married to Desdemona – who is half his age – is appointed leader of a major military operation. Iago, passed over for promotion by Othello in favour of the young Cassio, persuades Othello that Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair.
