Third Rail Repertory Theatre will present National Theatre's HD Screenings of Othello Starring Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear By William Shakespeare on Saturday, October 5 at 2pm and 7pm and Sunday, October 27 at 2pm and 7pm.
Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at The National Theatre, BBC'sHustle) 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 favour of the young Cassio, persuades Othello that Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair.
