Presented by Walking Shadow Theatre Company
May 12 - 28
Edmund Kean, a titan of his generation, collapses on stage, leaving Covent Garden without their Othello. Ira Aldridge, a little-known African American actor, is invited 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?
