    King Lear

    King Lear

    Armed with only a drum, a guitar, a knife and a chair, this inventive, irreverent and highly accessibleone-man is presented to you from the point of view of LEAR’s long suffering and ever-loyal fool. Blindness, betrayal, delusion, deceit, love, loyalty, lust and greed –it’s all here 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.
