The Dramatic Exploits of Edmund Kean
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
Award-winning RSC actor Ian Hughes presents a one-man show depicting the rise and decline of the great 19th century actor.

Following years of hardship as a strolling player (visiting Richmond in 1811), Kean was catapulted to stardom following his performance as Shylock at Drury Lane in 1814. Quickly becoming the most popular actor of his day, Kean electrified his audiences with his performances in Shakespeare. Yet within a few short years Kean’s increasingly erratic behavior, fuelled by drink, ensured audiences remembered Kean for all the wrong reasons.

By turns humorous and heartbreaking, 'The Dramatic Exploits of Edmund Kean' celebrates the spirit of one of the most unique talents that British theatre has ever produced.

Ian spent over a decade at The Royal Shakespeare Company. He was the winner of the first Ian Charleson /Royal National Theatre Award for Best Actor presented to him by Sir Alec Guinness. His many TV appearances include Dr. Who, Robin Hood, Torchwood, Alienists, Ransom, Gavin & Stacey, Mutual Friends and Stella.

Tickets cost £8 to £16 (includes £1 restoration levy) and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.
