King Lear

OddbodiesThis event has now finished

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.

The bastard Edmund, haughty Goneril, poor deluded Gloucester, oily Oswald, sweet Cordelia, mad Tom – all the characters from this sad and sorry tale are brought to glorious life before your very eyes.

Blindness, betrayal, delusion, deceit, love, loyalty, lust and greed; it’s all here in this fast paced, funny, poignant and ultimately heartbreaking production, told with all of Oddbodies’ trademark physical ingenuity and visual flair.

Artsreach audiences may remember previous Oddbodies tours including 'Richard III' and 'The Rake's Progress'.
