(Sept. 11, 2013) -- The UTSA Friends of Shakespeare and the Department of English will host Actors From the London Stage (AFTLS) for a presentation of Shakespeare's "Othello" at 7:30 p.m., Sept. 25, 27 and 28 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus.
The touring ensemble of five British actors represent several prestigious companies including the Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, English Touring Theatre, Royal National Theatre and Oxford Shakespeare Company.
Cast members include Jude Akuwudike, Richard Neale, Jan Shepherd, Jack Whitam and Alinka Wright. The actors play multiple roles in a production that utilizes simple costumes and minimal scenery with an emphasis on the riches of Shakespeare's language.
Actors From the London Stage visit American universities each year to perform and conduct classes and workshops. This is the company's 25th visit to UTSA. The residency is supported by The UTSA Friends of Shakespeare, the Crittenden Shakespeare Endowment and a grant from the Russell Hill Rogers Fund for the Arts.
Actors From the London Stage is an international touring theater organization jointly based in London and at the University of Notre Dame. It combines the talents of professional actors on stage with the rare opportunities for students to work with them in the classroom. Covering a vast range of topics, AFTLS residencies have been bringing Shakespeare to life at UTSA since 1988.
Tickets for performances of "Othello" go on sale Sept. 19 and are $18 for general admission and $10 for students with a student ID. They are available at the information desk in the University Center on the UTSA Main Campus and can be purchased by cash or check. Tickets also will be available at the door. All seats are reserved.
