Banned in their own country and driven underground, Belarus Free Theatre return to the Globe following a triumphant run at the Young Vic with their production of Trash Cuisine.
Belarus Free Theatre's King Lear, Shakespeare's great play about speaking the truth, proved one of the highlights at 2012's Globe to Globe Festival. Terrifying, provocative and charming, this is King Lear as you have never seen it before.
‘Energetic... extraordinary... charming’
‘Bold, irreverent and provocative’
