Red Velvet Adrian Lester, who together with his Othello co-star, Rory Kinnear, jointly won the best actor prize at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards, reprises his role as Ira Aldridge in Red Velvet when it transfers to the Garrick Theatre in 2016. The multi award-winning period drama, which originally premiered at the Tricycle Theatre, tells the true story of a young black American actor who's asked to take on the role of Othello when Edmund Kean, the greatest actor of his generation, has collapsed on stage. But, as the public riot in the streets over the abolition of slavery, how will they react to the revolution taking place in the theatre?

 

About Garrick Theatre

Named after the great 18th century actor-manager David Garrick, whose portrait hangs in the foyer bar, The Garrick is a fantastic piece of late-Victorian kitsch, originally financed by WS Gilbert. The interior is decorated like a Renaissance palace, all cupids and laurels, with hardly a smooth surface visible among all the moulding, gilt and classical statues. More about Garrick Theatre
