It is a performance of eloquent intensity — noble and detailed but with fire at its core. And the play, by his wife Lolita Chakrabarti, is a fine vehicle for Lester’s gifts. More than three years after an acclaimed premiere at Kilburn’s Tricycle Theatre, Indhu Rubasingham’s warm production gets a well-deserved run in the West End as part of the Kenneth Branagh Company’s year-long residency.
The action opens with Aldridge, nearly 60, preparing to take the stage in Poland. He fields earnest, tactless questions from a local journalist who has found her way into his dressing room. He’s a disillusioned figure, though still a magnetic one, and when we journey back into his past we understand his bitterness.
The 26-year-old Aldridge lands his big chance after Edmund Kean, the age’s most electrifying talent, collapses onstage. But it turns out that London isn’t ready for his courageously direct acting style — or for a black man to inhabit one of Shakespeare’s greatest roles. When the reviews appear, they drip with contempt. One critic laments the indecency of his co-star Ellen Tree’s Desdemona (played by Charlotte Lucas) being “pawed about” by a mere “servant”.Read more

Using Shakespeare’s original text, this heart-warming story is re-imagined for everyone aged six and over.Read more

Cleckleywyke, a town in the West Riding, 1908.
The Helliwells, the Parkers and the Soppitts are highly respected pillars of their community … but not for much longer.
Married on the same day in the same chapel, they gather to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. The celebrations are short lived when they discover the vicar wasn’t licensed and they are actually not married. In fact, they have been living in sin for 25 years.
Watch with mounting glee as the pandemonium switches from horrified social embarrassment to the realisation that they are free from the shackles of long tedious marriages. Home truths are dealt, bullies get their retribution and the hen-pecked are hilariously and most satisfyingly liberated.Read more

The Tony award winning Little Dog Laughed takes an acerbic and sharply funny jab at the entertainment industry and human nature in a tabloid-obsessed society.Read more
