Portraits in Character

Portraits in Character was a collaboration between the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company, Fiery Angel and contemporary portrait artist Alexander Newley. Newley spent a year creating portraits of several leading cast members from Branagh’s 2016 season at The Garrick Theatre; the portraits were then auctioned to raise funds to support the work of St Martin-in-the-Fields.
