Red Velvet

Ira Aldridge stepped into the shoes of King Lear and Othello. He performed for royalty across Europe. Indeed, he was one of the most respected actors of the 1800s. But he wasn’t always so highly regarded. The son of an African American Slave, Aldrige spent his childhood in the slums of New York before rising to stardom. In Red Velvet, playwright Lolita Chakrabarti imagines events in the life of this historical figure in order to explore themes of race and resilience.
