Sample event image Shakespeare’s classic tragedy set in a pub. Instead of a kingdom - a pub! Instead of a king - Mr Lear, the landlord! Hilarious and heart-breaking, King Lear unfolds using physical theatre, clowning and vibrant storytelling all linked by Shakespeare's magnificent text. What starts as a game becomes real as Shifting Sands play with Shakespeare’s ingredients yet remain faithful to his themes. There will be irreverence, but no parody. The result - comic, exhilarating, heart-felt theatre!
