Queen Lear

The epic and classic tale of Shakespeare’s Lear, pared back and told in a new light. Queen Lear seeks to explore this story and its characters in the modern day and with a switching of all the characters genders.

 

Our story of Queen Lear and her three sons is a matriarchal drama and political thriller that explores the treacheries within a family dynasty, the fears around ageing and how blind we all can be to the reality we live in. We strive to be visually striking and unashamedly confronting in the violence and sexuality that runs through this timeless play.
