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. Directed by Suba Das, the youngest ever Resident Director at the National Theatre Studio, this bold reimagining of Shakespeareâs tale of jealousy, obsession and sex draws on Grand Guignol, Kubrick, and the uniquely disturbing quality of Londonâs most fascinating archaeological space, to create a site-specific period horror movie. 90 minutes. No interval. For audiences over 18 only.Performers Nana-Amoo Gottfried (Othello), Cary Crankson (Iago), Ruth Pickett (Desdemona), Nana Amoo-Gottfried (Othello), Emily Randall (Emilia), Steve Clarek (Cassio), Richard Kiess (Roderigo), Daniel Wiltshire (Brabantio), John Sears (Duke of Venice).
