London’s Theatre Royal, 1833. Theatre history is made when Ira Aldridge becomes the first Black actor to take the stage as Shakespeare’s Othello. As a bill promoting the abolition of slavery sends shockwaves through Parliament, how will London react to Aldridge’s groundbreaking performance? Director Jade King Carroll makes her STC debut with Olivier Award winner Lolita Chakrabarti’s “gripping, intelligent, and passionate” ("The Financial Times") "Red Velvet", celebrating a pioneering actor who triumphed in his art despite a tempest of social injustice.
