She Is Lear

To be performed as a work in Progress at the 2013 Symposium at Rose Bruford College, Sidcup, Kent, at 7:30 at the Rose Theatre.

She is Lear is an attempt to look at the text of Shakespeare from the perspective of the woman body, exploring how the same emotional through-line would be delivered by the female body, in what circumpstance, and addressed to whom?. Without changing or editing the text, we have come up with a 40 minute montage of the text in order to find who this woman might be, who she would be talking to, what turmoil shivers her soul...

She is Lear is part of a trilogy including "The Lady is Macbeth" and "Is She Hamlet", to be developed in 2014.
