Sunday, May 4, 2 pm

James Bridges Theater, UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, 235 Charles E. Young Drive, Westwood

Othello in HD – L.A. Theatre Works and Brit Week LA bring a major new production of William Shakespeare’s celebrated play about the destructive power of jealousy, filmed live at England’s National Theatre, to Los Angeles audiences with this HD broadcast. 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 Guvnors) 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 favor of the young Cassio, persuades Othello that Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair.
