THE KING LEAR

Shakespeare's tragedy..... in a pub!

Three regulars decide to perform their own version of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy and set it in their local - "THE KING LEAR".

Instead of a kingdom, they have a pub!

Instead of a King they have a landlord - Mr Lear!
When he announces his retirement and the division of the pub between his daughters he imitates his famous namesake and demands to know which of them loves him the most. So begins a playful, accessible interpretation of this classic

tragedy. Set not in Stratford Upon Avon but in a pub!
