Red Velvet returns - Tricycle Theatre from Jan 2014

Lolita Chakrabarti's multi award-winning production which became one of the must-see shows of 2012 returns to the Tricycle for a limited run prior to its New York transfer! 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? Imagined experiences based on the true story of Ira Aldridge.

Propelled by the beat of classic soul, smooth R&B and disco, this is the soundtrack of a boy's coming of age in '70′s and '80′s Philadelphia. Written and performed by Tony Award nominated actor Colman Domingo. 'A blazingly charismatic performer' The New York Times
