Armed with only a drum, a guitar, a knife and a chair, this inventive, irreverent and highly accessible one-man is presented to you from the point of view of LEAR's 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 in this fast paced, funny, poignant and ultimately heartbreaking production.

Adapted & performed by Paul Morel and directed by John Mowat with all of Oddbodies' trademark physical ingenuity and visual flair, this is an unmissable reworking of one of Shakespeare's most brilliant plays.

 

'About as far away from 'trad & bad' as you can get, and it's brilliant...You do not want to miss this'

BroadwayBaby

'Paul Morel is no question, a fierce talent... A hilarious, fantastic evening'

BingeFringe

'It's hard to imagine a more accessible interpretation of Shakespeare's narrative'
