Miracle Theatre Presents King Lear
August 5, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until August 5, 2022
KING LEAR AT THE ISLAND, ST IVES
This summer, Cornwall’s Miracle Theatre presents Shakespeare’s most elemental and passionate play.
King Lear is an exquisitely dark tale about a family squabble that grows out of all proportion, blowing up into a storm of deadly force.
This fresh and fast-paced adaptation of Shakespeare’s text – pared down to its bare essentials – tells a shocking, yet tender, story of ageing and madness, fuelled by ambition and fired by betrayal.
Shakespeare loved to weave theatrical magic out of tragedy in a way that is never far from farce, making King Lear ripe for Miracle’s unique treatment!
Freely adapted and directed by Bill Scott
