The National Theatre's highly anticipated production of Shakespeare's iconic tragedy is broadcast in Cineworld. Othello (Adrian Lester) is newly married to Desdemona (Olivia Vinall) and is also appointed leader of a military operation to protect Cyprus from the Turks. But instead of promoting his ensign Iago (Rory Kinnear), Othello instead favours Cassio. The vengeful Iago then persuades Othello that Desdemona has been having an affair with Cassio - leading to violent retribution and murder. One of Shakespeare's most famous plays, Othello's themes of loyalty, betrayal and jealousy are given a terrifically exciting, modern spin in this new production directed by the famed Nicholas Hytner. Olivier Award-winning actors Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear (both acclaimed veterans of the National) make for a brilliantly dynamic on-stage partnership. Broadcast from the comfort of your local Cineworld, this production of Othello is an unmissable treat for lovers of the Bard and Shakespeare newcomers alike.
