Worthwhile production of Othello by the NT. Kinnear was wonderful as Iago; Lester was good as Othello. The setting in modern-day Iraq was fairly successful, though I don't believe it mattered too much. For me the female parts were not done as well but if you are interested in Shakespeare, you should see this if only for Kinnear's amazing performance.
Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at the National Theatre, BBC’s Hustle_) takes the title role. Playing opposite him as the duplicitous Iago is fellow Olivier Award winner Rory Kinnear (_The Last of the Haussmans, James Bond: Skyfall_), who is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner (_Timon of Athens, One Man, Two Guvnors) following their acclaimed collaboration on the National Theatre’s recent production of Hamlet.
