Lenny Henry set for West End debut in Othello this Friday (11th September 2009)

Posted: 9th September 2009

Brummy stand-up and sketch comedian Lenny Henry hits the West End planks this Friday, marking his debut in the city in the role of a stage actor.

Lenny is to play the lead role of in Shakespeare's Othello, a role he has now played - and sold-out - in theatres across the UK, which has seen much acclaim. The story, with its contemporary themes of love, racism, jealousy and desire still strike a chord today, centuries after it was written.

Catch Lenny from this Friday at Trafalgar Studios (near Charing Cross station) in London from this Friday 11th September until Saturday 12th December. Tickets available now from £35 + booking fee.
