He’s dead, too! But the spirit of the old King is unable to rest as he battles to understand the actions of his three daughters. His dear companion and shamanic guide, Fool, shape-shifts in taunting flashes of half-glimpsed insight, as the King becomes ever more lost in his memory and his madness.  Both tragic and playful, this is ‘Lear’ as you’ve never seen it before: an explosive fusion of drama, dance, clowning and comedy.
 
‘It’s utterly innovative…  The acting is, quite simply, exceptional… A creative, shocking and entertaining piece of theatre’ (Fringe Guru)
 
‘A must-see for all Shakespeare fans’ (Rip It Up Publications)
 
‘Masterpiece of wit and grief, tears and music’ (A Younger Theatre)
