THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 5TH OCTOBER 2013
Adrian Lester, known for starring in BBC's 'Hustle', will take on one of Shakespeare's more demanding roles when 'Othello' comes to the National Theatre this spring. The jealous and conniving Iago will be played by Rory Kinnear winner of best actor in the Evening Standard's drama awards after his 2010 portrayal of Hamlet. Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of Shakespeare's drama will take to the stage as part of the National Theatre's 50th anniversary season.
