GeorgeFest19 - The Dramatic Exploits of Edmund Kean
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
This captivating one-man show celebrates one of the most unique talents that British theatre has ever produced.

Written and performed by award-winning Royal Shakespeare Company actor Ian Hughes, The Dramatic Exploits of Edmund Kean charts the rise and decline of the great 19th Century actor.

Following years of hardship as a strolling player, 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 of Shakespeare. Yet within a few short years, Kean’s increasingly erratic behavior, fuelled by drink, ensured audiences remembered him for all the wrong reasons.

Ian spent over a decade at The Royal Shakespeare Company. He was the winner of the 1st 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, Shakespeare & Hathaway, Torchwood, Alienists, Ransom, Gavin & Stacy, Mutual Friends and Stella.

Tickets cost £14 and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.
