Shakespeare's keen understanding of jealousy in love results in perhaps his greatest triumph as a stage play, and his prime example of the tragic hero Othello.

Othello, a noble Moor has in his command lago, a lieutenant who is insanely jealous of Othellos success and higher rank. Othello elopes with his lover, Desdemona. At every turn Lago plots to exploit Othello, undermine his trust in Desdemona and deceive Othello into an all-consuming jealousy. Lagos successful conniving results in Othello smothering Desdemona in her bed-chamber. The story of Lagos diabolical treachery is revealed to Othello only after the murder. Othello wounds Lago in a vengeful fight, then kills himself. Featuring William Marshal, Ron Moody and Jenny Agutter.
