Festival 36 Event. Encore screening of the National Theatre Live production of Othello on the big screen at The Core.
As part of Festival 36, we are delighted to announce that we'll be schowing an Encore screening of the National Theatre Live production of Much Ado About Nothing on the big screen at The Core Theatre Solihull.
Othello by William Shakespeare
directed by Clint Dyer
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 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 on the Lyttleton stage of the National Theatre.
This is a screening, not a live production.
Festival 36 is part of the ‘Everything to Everybody’ Project -‐ an ambitious three-year celebration of one of the UK’s most important cultural assets: the vast Shakespeare Memorial Library housed within the Library of Birmingham. Everything to Everybody will give the city’s uniquely democratic Shakespeare heritage back to the people, and is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham and Birmingham City Council, with funding also contributed by National Lottery Heritage Fund and History West Midlands.
