Based on a true story, Lolita Chakrabarti’s Red Velvet takes you back to the Theatre Royal in London in 1833, where Edmund Kean, regarded as the greatest actor of his time, has collapsed while playing Othello.

Adrian Lester, who played Aldridge in the Tricycle Theatre’s acclaimed production, stars.
