“It’s like being at a crossroads – a point of absolute, unequivocal change.
It makes the blood rush.”
Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, 1833. Edmund Kean, the greatest actor of his generation, has collapsed on stage whilst playing Othello. A young black American actor has been asked to take over the role. But as the public riot in the streets over the abolition of slavery, how will the cast, critics and audience react to the revolution taking place in the theatre?
Imagined experiences based on the true story of Ira Aldridge.
‘A layered and revealing play, superbly acted’ The Independent on Sunday
‘What an incisive, fervent beginning…Rubasingham’s production glows’
