Kevin Lennon features in Red Ellen, a new play that tells the inspiring and epic story of Ellen Wilkinson, Labour MP, who was forever on the right side of history, forever on the wrong side of life. Written by Caroline Bird and directed by Wils Wilson, Red Ellen is a co-production between Northern Stage, Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company, and the Royal Lyceum Theatre, with casting by BAA Creatives clients, Simone Pereira Hind CDG and Anna Dawson.
Caught between revolutionary and parliamentary politics, Ellen fights with an unstoppable, reckless energy for a better world. Running (quite literally in some cases) into the likes of Albert Einstein and Ernest Hemingway, she battles to save Jewish refugees in Nazi Germany; campaigns for Britain to aid the fight against Franco’s Fascists in Spain; and leads 200 workers in the Jarrow Crusade, marching from Newcastle to London to deliver a petition to end unemployment and poverty. She serves as a vital member of Churchill’s cabinet, and has affairs with communist spies and government ministers. But, despite all of this, she still finds herself – somehow – on the outside looking in.
