The King Lear

Shakespeare’s tragedy..... in a pub!

“When we are born we cry that we are come To this great stage of fools.”

When he announces his retirement and the division of his ‘kingdom’ between his daughters, Mr Lear imitates his famous namesake and demands to know which of them loves him the most. In so doing he unleashes a tide of pent-up frustration and jealousy.

Hilarious and heart breaking, The King Lear will unfold using physical theatre, clowning and vibrant storytelling all linked by Shakespeare’s magnificent text.

What starts as a game becomes real as Shifting Sands play with Shakespeare’s ingredients yet remain faithful to his themes. There will be irreverence, but no parody. The result – potent, accessible theatre.

Age guidance: for adults but suitable for 11yrs+
