KING LEAR RETOLD by Debs Newbold

Tell me my daughters...which of you shall we say doth love us most?

Dark and challenging, epic and shocking, human and uplifting.  In this explosive retelling of the legend of Lear, King of the Britons, Debs Newbold channels her love of Shakespeare's language to whip up a great storm that will snatch you from your seat and send you hurtling into its bloody centre. 

Created for a sell-out show at The Hay Festival, toured internationally and performed to acclaim at Shakespeare's Globe, this is a storytelling event you cannot miss.

“Just the most amazing offering of Shakespeare I've seen in some while; fresh, playful...real”- Spread the Word

Recommended for ages 12+
