Overview

The date for this event has moved from Friday 24 April  2020 to the new date of Thursday 3 December 2020.  We are contacting customers via email and phone to advise of this change.  All tickets remain valid for this new date and we will send replacement tickets to customers once the building is open again. 

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.

Armed with only a drum, a guitar, a knife and a chair, the tragic trajectory of Lear’s demise is presented to you from the point of view of his long suffering and ever-loyal fool. 

Blindness, betrayal, delusion, deceit, love, loyalty, lust and greed –it’s all here in this fast paced, funny, poignant and ultimately heartbreaking production.
