RSC's Othello live on screen at Theatr Mwldan Dydd Mercher 26 Awst | Wednesday 26 August, 7.00yh/pm
£12.50 (£11.50)

At Theatr Mwldan, Aberteifi | Cardigan

Othello by William Shakespeare, directed by Iqbal Khan, with Hugh Quarshie in the title role and Lucian Msamati as Iago will be screened via satellite to Theatr Mwldan on Wednesday 26 August at 7.00pm live from the Royal Shakespeare Company, Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Othello is the greatest general of his age. A fearsome warrior, loving husband and revered defender of Venice against its enemies.

But he is also an outsider whose victories have created enemies of his own, men driven by prejudice and jealousy to destroy him. As they plot in the shadows, Othello realises too late that the greatest danger lies not in the hatred of others, but his own fragile and destructive pride.

Othello will be directed by Iqbal Khan, whose last production for the RSC was an acclaimed Much Ado About Nothing in 2012, set in India. 

After more than a decade working in film and television on projects from STAR WARS to Holby City, Hugh Quarshie returns to the RSC to play the title role. He last appeared with the Company in 1996 in Faust and Julius Caesar. Lucian Msamati also returns to play Iago. His most recent theatre work includes Little Revolution at the Almeida, The Amen Corner and The Comedy of Errors at the National Theatre, and Clybourne Park, which also ran in the West End. His TV work includes Game of Thrones, Ashes to Ashes and The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. He last appeared at the RSC in Pericles in 2006.

Tickets for RSC: Othello on Wednesday 26 August at 7.00pm are £12.50 (£11.50) and are available to book from Theatr Mwldan’s Box Office on 01239 621200, online or via smart phone at
