THE KING LEAR

Shifting Sands Theatre

Please note this event is held at 2 different venues

Wednesday 31 May | The Clarence, Bury

Thursday 1 June | The Grants Arms, Ramsbottom

Three regulars decide to perform their own version of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy and set it in their local "The King Lear".

Instead of a Kingdom they have a pub! Instead a King they have a landlord, Mr Lear!

When he announces his retirement and the division of the pub between his daughters Mr Lear imitates his famous namesake and demands to know which of them loves him the most.

So begins a playful, accessible interpretation of this classic tragedy. Set not in Stratford Upon Avon but in a pub!

Hilarious and heart breaking, The King Lear will unfold using clowning, physical theatre and vibrant storytelling, all linked by Shakespeare's text.
