Art imitates life in Lantern Theater’s production of Lolita Chakrabarti’s true-to-life play, which enjoys its Philadelphia premiere this fall. Set in London circa 1833, a place and time of heated anti-abolition protests, the story dramatizes the experience of Ira Aldridge, the first African-American actor to play Othello.
