Iqbal Khan’s modernized production of Shakespeare’s Othello for the RSC stars Hugh Quarshie and Lucian Msamati.
Royal Shakespeare Company
Mark Antony has it all following Caesar's assassination - power, glory, and a whole empire. In chasing for the love of Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, he neglects his empire and his duties as emperor. In the battle between duty and liturgy to Cleopatra, Antony's military deserts him. A tragic end is to surely follow.
