“THE KING LEAR” 
Shakespeare’s tragedy..... in a pub! 
Shakespeare’s classic tragedy set in a pub - “THE KING LEAR.”
Instead of a Kingdom - a pub!
Instead of a King - Mr Lear, the landlord!
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 frustration and jealousy.
Hilarious and heart breaking, "THE KING LEAR" blends physical theatre, audience participation and clowning, all linked by Shakespeare's magnificent text. There will be irreverence, but no parody. SHIFTING SANDS play with Shakespeare’s ingredients yet remain faithful to his themes.
The result - accessible, comic, exhilarating, heart-felt theatre!
