Adrian Lester, last seen at the National as Henry V, takes the title role, playing opposite Rory Kinnear (Iago), whose recent appearances at the National include Hamlet and The Last of the Haussmans. Running time: 3 hours and 20 minutes. ????? Daily Express, Daily Telegraph, Metro, The Times ‘Adrian Lester’s marvellous Othello... has all the dignified vulnerability one could wish.’ The Times ‘Rory Kinnear gives a stunning study of a sociopath... his Iago burns with a contempt for the human race and for the beauty in other men’s lives.’ Guardian ‘Othello pays a glorious tribute to Nicholas Hytner’s decade at the National.’ Independent ‘Witty, agile, lucid and deeply felt. A gripping production of a tragedy which is also an intensely painful psychological thriller... it never loosens its dramatic hold.’ Daily Telegraph ‘Gripping, lucid... a taut, claustrophobic interpretation of Shakespeare’s tragedy.’ Time Out ‘One of the most eagerly awaited theatrical events of the year. Nicholas Hytner directs with an extraordinary, rigorous attention to clarity of language: at times you forget they’re speaking in Elizabethan verse.’ Metro
