Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, London, 1833. Edmund Kean, the greatest actor of his generation, has collapsed on stage while playing Othello. Ira Aldridge, a young black American actor, has been asked to take over the role. But as the public riots in the streets over theabolition of the Slavery Act, how will the cast, critics and audience react to the revolution taking place in the theater?
Adrian Lester gives a mesmerizing, must-see performance in Red Velvet — a heartbreaking new drama that is both “fiery and funny in equal measure” (Time Out London). Lester himself has gone on to win praise as Othello in Nicholas Hytner’s new staging, currently running at the National Theatre in London.
Imagined experiences based on the true story of Ira Aldridge.
