Armed with only a drum, a guitar, a knife and a chair, this one-man performance of the tragic tale of KING LEAR is presented to you from the point of view of his long suffering and ever-loyal fool. The bastard Edmund, haughty Goneril, poor deluded Gloucester, oily Oswald, sweet Cordelia, mad Tom – all the characters from this sad and sorry tale brought to glorious life before your very eyes in this fast paced, funny, poignant and ultimately heartbreaking production.
‘Something of a miniature masterpiece… a brilliantly entertaining, and frequently astonishing evening. A tour de force of physical theatre…’ Adapted & performed by Paul Morel, directed by John Mowat with all of Oddbodies’ trademark physical ingenuity and visual flair, this is an inventive, irreverent and highly accessible take on one of Shakespeare’s most brilliant plays. ‘You do not want to miss this’ *****BroadwayBaby
