Miracle Theatre : 'King Lear' - Shakespeare, freely adapted & directed by Bill Scott

<b><i>Miracle Theatre : 'King Lear'</i></b>

Date: Tuesday 23rd August 2022
Time: 19:30

Miracle Theatre : 
'King Lear'
For this Summer's Open-Air Theatre Tour, Cornwall’s Miracle Theatre presents Shakespeare’s most elemental and passionate play, freely adapted and directed by Bill Scott

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.

Shakespeare loved to weave theatrical magic out of tragedy in a way that is never far from farce, making King Lear ripe for Miracle’s unique treatment!

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.

What audiences have said about previous Shakespeare adaptations by Miracle
“A triumph of artistry over logic, so inspired and hugely enjoyable” The Tempest
“Better than Stratford in June” Romeo & Juliet

Recommended for ages 12+
Gates Open & Licensed Bar from 6.00pm. The Play starts at 7.30pm

Approx running time: 2 hours plus Interval
