Stage

Quill Theatre Presents: Red Velvet

When: Jan. 17-Feb. 9 2019

Edmund Kean, the greatest Shakespearean actor of his age, collapses on stage while performing the lead in "Othello." He is replaced by a young, black actor, Ira Aldridge – a first for the role in London’s West End. As a bill in Parliament promoting the abolition of slavery sends shock waves through the streets, how will London react to his performance?
