    "Speak of one that loved not wisely but too well." This moving tragedy tells the story of Othello, a Moorish general, whose servant Iago deceives him into believing his wife, Desdemona, is unfaithful. In a jealous rage, he murders her - and then must face his own self-loathing when he realizes what he has done. In rendering the dramatic descent of a proud warrior from greatness to jealous insanity, Shakespeare produced some of the most eloquent passages ever written in the English language. This full-cast performance does justice to Shakespeare's words, featuring Frank Silvera as Othello, Alan Bates as Cassio, Cyril Cusack as Iago, and Anna Massey as Desdemona.

    Promoted to the rank of Monsignor, Quixote and his friend Sancho, the ex-mayor of El Toboso and an avid Communist, set off on their travels in the rusty old car the call Rocinante. Together, they roam through modern-day Spain in a brilliant picaresque fable that, like Cervantes' classic, offers enduring insights into our life and times. Cyril Cusack reads Grahame Greene’s moving, hilarious novel about a Catholic priest and his friend, a Marxist mayor.

    Othello revolves around four central characters: Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army; his wife Desdemona; his lieutenant, Cassio; and his trusted ensign, Iago. Because of its varied and current themes of racism, love, jealousy, and betrayal, Othello is still often performed in professional and community theatres alike and has been the basis for numerous operatic, film, and literary adaptations.
