The musical about Ira Aldridge – the first great black actor known around the world. It takes place in the middle of the 19th century, in an era of shuddering authoritarian governments in Europe and roaring revolutionary and national liberation movements. All it takes is a spark to lead to an explosion all around Europe. Will Ira Aldridge light that spark by warming audiences with his great Shakespearean roles? Are his performances part of a conspiracy? Can Shakespeare and theatre change the world? And can the world revolution begin in the industrial city of Łódź? The musical combines the features of a historical and political thriller, crime story and heroic epos, it is a story about love, jealousy, rebellion, and most importantly – about theatre and actors.
