Last Call

The Olivier Award-nominated production of Othello ends its run at the Lyttelton Theatre this weekend. Set in the Thirties, director Sam Mendes puts David Harewood, the first black actor at the National to play Othello, in a dinner jacket and gives Venice a mildly fascist air. Simon Russell Beale is Iago, Claire Skinner is sweet Desdemona and Antony Ward designed the austere set (indebted to Trevor Nunn's famous Edwardian production of the play).

National Theatre, Lyttelton, South Bank, London SE1 (0171-452 3000) 12 Jun at 7pm and 13 Jun at 1.30 and 7pm
