Armed with only a drum, guitar, knife and chair, this inventive, irreverent and highly accessible one-man adaptation of KING LEAR is presented from the point of view of his 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 & sorry tale brought to glorious life before your very eyes. Adapted & performed by Paul Morel and directed by John Mowat with all of Oddbodies' trademark physical ingenuity and visual flair - a funny, fast paced and ultimately heartbreaking production.
