There are still tickets available for Miracle Theatre’s production of King Lear on The Island this Thursday and Friday (4th and 5th August).
King Lear is an exquisitely dark tale about a family squabble that grows out of all proportion, blowing up into a storm of deadly force.
This fresh and fast-paced adaptation of Shakespeare’s text — pared down to its bare essentials — tells a shocking, yet tender, story of ageing and madness, fuelled by ambition and fired by betrayal.
Freely adapted and directed by Bill Scott, this is an outdoor show. Bring everything you need, including seats, blankets, and a torch to enjoy an evening of open-air theatre. Picnics are welcome.
