Surely among Shakespeare’s best-known works (and let’s face it, a lot of them are very well known!) Othello is due to be have a captioned staging at The National Theatre later this year.
According to the theatre, the performance is due to take place on June 25th, with interested potential audience members asked to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if they would like to see it.
Othello is set to be played by Adrian Lester in this production. Iago, one of theatre’s most famed villains, will be played by Rory Kinnear.
The play charts Othello’s descent into jealousy which, of course, ends in tragedy in some of Shakespeare's most powerful scenes.
Staged in the Olivier theatre, the play’s run is set to kick off on April 16th this year.
It’s not the only National production that’s set to see a captioned performance.
Set to happen earlier in the year is the captioned staging of The Captain of Kopenick, starring Antony Sher.
This is due to take place on April 3rd, shortly after the Easter weekend that has seen so many of us enjoy time off.
Ron Hutchinson has provided a fresh version of the Carl Zuckmayer play, with the production remaining at the Olivier Theatre until April 4th.
Following this performance, the captioned performance of This House is due to take place at the same venue.
This production has been scheduled for April 7th this year, and will take place at 2.30pm.
The politics-themed play returns audiences to the mid 1970s, with the action taking place in Westminster.
Captioned performances of plays are also on their way at other venues, such as Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, where The Tempest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth are all set to take to this stage alongside captioning technology soon.
