Othello, a Moor, falls in love with Desdemona but is broken by jealousy falsely encouraged. Shakespeare's most human play sets delicacy and power, trust and jealousy, love and hate, good and evil in stark and tragic opposition. Powerless in the face of their own self destructive instincts, the characters are caught on a downward spiral towards inevitable tragedy.Performers Clarke Peters (Othello), Dominic West (Iago), Ian Barritt (Duke/Clown), Luciano Dodero (Montano/Officer/Attendant), Colin George (Brabantio/Gratiano), Alexandra Gilbreath (Emilia), Josh Hart (2nd Senator/3rd Gentleman/Musician/Othello's Gentleman), Lily James (Desdemona), Ben Lee (Attendant/Messenger/2nd Gentleman/Musician), Gwilym Lee (Cassio), Leigh McDonald (Bianca), Rhodri Miles (Lodovico), Brodie Ross (Roderigo), Andrew Thompson (Attendant/Sailor/1st Gentleman/Musician).
