by William Shakespeare
directed by Clint Dyer
Captured live from the Lyttelton stage of the National Theatre. Shakespeare’s compelling tragedy of boundary-defying love, thwarted by oppressive social barriers
and meddling outside forces, is brought startlingly up to date by a stellar cast including Giles Terera (Hamilton), Rosy McEwen (The Alienist), and Paul Hilton (The Inheritance). She’s a bright, headstrong daughter of a senator; elevated by her status but stifled by its expectations. He’s a refugee of slavery; having risen to the top of a white world, he finds love across racial lines has a cost. Wed in secret, Desdemona and Othello crave a new life together. But as unseen forces conspire against them, they find their future is not theirs to decide. Not Rated 3 Hours. May 12, 13, 14,15 at 1pm. Admission $10 general admission, $9 for student, seniors, and veterans, and $8 for theatre members.
