The Dramatic Exploits of Edmund Keane

The Dramatic Exploits of Edmund Keane

By turns humorous and heartbreaking, this remarkable one-man show celebrates the spirit of one of the most unique talents that British theatre has ever produced. Following years of hardship as a strolling player, Edmund 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.
