'The Wire' Star Dominic West Shines In 'Othello'

Actors Dominic West and Clarke Peters, best known for starring in TV drama The Wire, have started their stage run in Othello at The Crucible in Sheffield.

West impressed as the sinister Iago, played with a Yorkshire accent, opposite Peters in the title role.

West was born and grew up in the city and his grandfather was involved in building the theatre, which is celebrating its 40th birthday.
