Red Velvet – at Tricycle Theatre

“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?” – from the Tricycle Theatre website

Most Promising Playwright: Lolita Chakrabarti (Evening Standard Award & Critics’ Circle Award)
Best Actor: Adrian Lester (Critics’ Circle Award)

“A layered and revealing play, superbly acted” – The Independent on Sunday

★★★★ – The Times, Financial Times, The Guardian, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, Time Out, Evening Standard

“Rubasingham’s production glows” – The Observer

“Gripping, intelligent and passionate” ★★★★ – Financial Times

“Fiery and funny in equal measure.” ★★★★ – Time Out

“Lester’s Aldridge is wonderfully stirring” ★★★★ – The Independent

“Lester beautifully captures the pained dignity and irritation of the ageing, ailing actor.” ★★★★ –The Daily Telegraph

Please purchase your own ticket direct from the theatre. If you’re open to sitting next to another member, feel free to mention your seat number in the comments below, for group members who might want to book a neighbouring seat.

I am booked in seat BB3. These are side seats in the balcony but you are near enough to the stage to see well. There are plenty of these seats left. You also get an individual seat so plenty of room!

If you would like to meet as a group for a drink in the theatre bar before the play, let me know in the comments – I will circulate details in the days before the play.
