King Lear Retold
  • London Fringe

Dark and challenging, epic and shocking, human and uplifting. In this explosive retelling of the legend of Lear, King of the Britons, Debs Newbold channels her love of Shakespeare's language to whip up a great storm that will snatch you from your seat and send you hurtling into its bloody centre.

Created for a sell-out show at The Hay Festival, toured internationally and performed to acclaim at Shakespeare's Globe, this is a storytelling event you cannot miss.

Debs Newbold's work brings together the poetic and the irreverent, the ancient and the defiantly modern. Debs is one of the UK's most acclaimed Performance Storytellers, regularly playing venues such as the Royal Opera House, Southbank Centre and Shakespeare's Globe, as well as touring internationally.
