-RESCHEDULED FOR 2020- Oddbodies: King Lear

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been rescheduled for early 2020.

 

Adapted & performed by Paul Morel, directed by John Mowat with all of Oddbodies’ trademark physical ingenuity and visual flair, this is an inventive, irreverent and highly accessible take on one of Shakespeare’s most brilliant plays.

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 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.

"About as far away from ‘trad & bad’ as you can get, and it’s brilliant…You do not want to miss this" ★ Broadway Baby

"Paul Morel is no question, a fierce talent.. A hilarious, fantastic evening★ Binge Fringe

"It’s hard to imagine a more accessible interpretation of Shakespeare’s narrative Fringe Guru
