Lyman Main Stage
Directed by Benjamin Curns
The year is 1833 and London’s preeminent Shakespearean actor, Charles Kean, has collapsed in the middle of performing Othello. In dire need of a replacement, the Theatre Royal’s manager decides to invite his friend Ira Aldridge from the US. Everyone is relieved to find out a replacement has been found so quickly until they realize that Aldridge is black. A maelstrom of wildly different reactions ensues from actors, critics, and audiences as they debate principles of prejudice, progressivism, and the art of acting.
