Splendid Mummer

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

It is October 1825. A black man strides onto the stage at the Royal Coburg Theatre (aka The Old Vic). He plays a classic role with great authority. The audience applauds wildly, but he is mercilessly slated by the critics and hounded out of London.

Ira Aldridge goes on to become the most decorated actor of modern times.

Part of a season of events to mark the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade.
