LEAR: That Old Man I Used to Know
About LEAR: That Old Man I Used to Know
A young girl has run away to her Grandmother's attic, a space for forgotten objects covered with drop cloths and dusty time. When searching through a stack of old books, she opens one up to reveal that the words literally come alive off the pages as characters and creatures emerge around her and begin to tell her the story of King Lear. A classic story, retold through the eyes of a child.
For ten years, Smith Street Stage has produced award-winning Shakespeare in Carroll Park. Now, Smith Street Stage is proud to present 'Lear: That Old Man I Used to Know,' running September 5 - 22 at the Gural Theatre.
