Long serving HOLBY CITY actor Hugh Quarshie will be joining the Royal Shakespeare Company next year.
Hugh, who plays surgeon Ric Griffin in the medical series will play Othello from 4th June – 28th August 2015.
He last appeared at the RSC in Faust and Julius Caesar back in 1996.
Othello is the greatest general of his age. A fearsome warrior, loving husband and revered defender of Venice against its enemies.
But he is also an outsider whose victories have created enemies of his own, men driven by prejudice and jealousy to destroy him. As they plot in the shadows, Othello realises too late that the greatest danger lies not in the hatred of others, but his own fragile and destructive pride.
