Drawing: Adrian Lester in Red Velvet at the Tricycle Theatre

Adrian Lester001

Adrian Lester signed my sketch at the Tricycle Theatre on the final day of the RED VELVET season.The award-winning play, written by his wife Lolita Chakrabarti, is the story of Ira Aldridgeo – the first African-American actor of note to perform on stage in Victorian London. He is considered to be one of the greatest Shakespearen thespians of the 19th Century. Adrian and Lolita both won awards at the recent London Critics’ circle Theatre Awards.

Known for his role as con man Mickey Bricks in the TV series HUSTLE, it did cross my mind that a ‘mark’ in grifter’s terms means ‘a target’…. a thought best left as a thought as he, as usual, graciously signed and dedicated the drawing.
