bring their one-man show King Lear to Waterside in Sale, Trafford this November. Armed with only a drum, a guitar, a knife and a chair, this inventive, irreverent and highly accessible one-man adaptation is presented to you from the point of view of Lear’s 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 – are brought to glorious life in a fast paced, funny, poignant and ultimately heartbreaking production.
Adapted and performed by Paul Morel and directed by John Mowat with all of Oddbodies’ trademark physical ingenuity and visual flair, this is an unmissable reworking of one of Shakespeare’s most brilliant plays. First seen at the 2019 Brighton Fringe Festival, this highly acclaimed production is now touring the UK.
King Lear comes to Waterside, Sale on Thursday 11 November 19:30
