‘Tell me my daughters...which of you shall we say doth love us most?’  

In an explosive retelling of the legend of Lear, king of the Britons, Debs Newbold channels her love of Shakespeare’s language to whip up a storm that will snatch you from your seat. Created for a sell-out show at The Hay Festival, toured internationally and performed to acclaim at Shakespeare’s Globe, this is a family storytelling event you will not want to miss.

Suitable for ages 12+


In association with Southwark Dementia Action Alliance to celebrate Creativity and Wellbeing Week.
