Not long left to see Othello at the National Theatre

15th August 2013

Back in April, the National Theatre kicked off a star-studded new production of Othello - one of the best-known and most highly esteemed plays in the English literary canon, and a highlight of William Shakespeare's legendary oeuvre.

Four months down the line, the production is still up and running - but not for much longer. The National Theatre has recently released tickets for the last handful of performances, which stretch until the beginning of October - meaning fans of the Bard have a little over a month to book hotel accommodation in London and catch a show.

Othello tells the story of the eponymous 'Moor of Venice' - a decorated general of north African origin - and his marriage to Venetian beauty Desdemona. Conducted in secret, their union ruffles the feathers of the local aristocracy. What's more, it incites Othello's lieutenant - the crafty Iago - into plotting towards his master's downfall.

Iago is widely considered one of Shakespeare's most diabolical - not to mention elusive - villains. In the National Theatre's production, he's played by Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear - perhaps best known to filmgoers for his appearances in recent James Bond films Quantum of Solace and Skyfall.

The title role, meanwhile, is taken by Adrian Lester - last seen at the National Theatre in Henry V - and Olivia Vinall stars as Desdemona.

Othello runs until October 5th. Tickets are available from £12, so catching a performance won't break the bank. A full list of showtimes and the option to book seats are available on the National Theatre's website. Most evening performances kick off at 7:15pm.

The theatre is located on the South Bank - one of the English capital's leading cultural quarters. Being in the city centre, the venue is a stone's throw from many museums, galleries and luxury London hotels, so getting there shouldn't be difficult.

Those travelling via the London Underground should head towards the Waterloo or Embankment tube stops.
