About

Three of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies are presented here as a 3-BD set. Rising star Paapa Essiedu gives a stunning performance in Simon Godwin’s riveting contemporary take on Hamlet ; Antony Sher leads the way as the proud but fatally flawed monarch in RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran’s acclaimed King Lear; completing the collection is Iqbal Khan’s astonishing and groundbreaking production of Othello, featuring Hugh Quarshie in the title role and Lucian Msamati as Iago.

‘…an utterly engaging performance by Paapa Essiedu.’ - The Times (Hamlet)

‘Antony Sher is unbearably moving as the volatile king, in Gregory Doran’s stellar production full of standout performances’ - The Guardian (King Lear)

‘Hugh Quarshie is an excellent Othello...’ - The Guardian (Othello)
