Presented by Civic Theatre Newcastle
Civic Cinema - National Theatre Live - Othello

An extraordinary new production of Shakespeare’s most enduring tragedy, directed by Clint Dyer with a cast that includes Giles Terera (Hamilton), Rosy McEwean (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.

Othello is filmed live on the Lyttleton stage of the National Theatre.

Warnings: Contains racially offensive language and imagery, and depictions of mental and domestic abuse and violence, which some people may find upsetting.
Running time: 3hrs
