Red Velvet, Tricycle Theatre, Kilburn, London


The very best of British theatre! Lolita Chakrabarti’s play; Red Velvet, creates an exciting experience depicting crucial points in the life of Ira Aldridge, an African American actor, famed for his performances in nineteenth century Europe. The dialogue and mise-en-scène is encapsulating and powerful throughout. Adrian Lester, who plays Aldridge beyond my expectations is in a class of his own. I sincerely hope this production makes a come back, as it is unreservedly outstanding from start to finish.
