Reviews

"Chakrabarti's writing is funny and fierce . . . the issues 'Red Velvet' deals with are far from past tense." --Time Out London

"Chakrabarti smartly draws parallels between the world of Shakespeare's Othello, the 1830s and our own society. She writes shrewdly about the theatre's role as an instrument of both social progress and conservatism . . . an arresting and sometimes very funny play." --Evening Standard
