Red Velvet

Red Velvet
O.W.I. (Bureau of Theatre)
Plaza Theatre at Boston Center for the Arts
May 30 –June 16

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?

Lolita Chakrabarti’s play creates imagined experiences based on the little-known, but true, story of Ira Aldridge, an African-American actor who, in the nineteenth century, built an incredible reputation on the stages of London and Europe.

Directed for O.W.I. by Bryn Boice and with Matt Arnold, Siobhan Carroll, Benjamin Church, Tom Grenon, Seth Hill, Desire Hinkson, Charlotte Kinder, Spencer Tew
