Cut and pasted from the National Theatre Website:

by William Shakespeare
Playing from 16 April

Oh, beware, my lord, of jealousy!
It is the green-eyed monster,
which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.

Othello, newly married to Desdemona who is half his age, is appointed leader of a military operation to defend Cyprus from the Turks. Iago, his ensign, passed over for promotion in favour of young Cassio, persuades Othello that Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair.
