King Lear Retold ~ Debs Newbold

Sunday 11th February 2018 - Starts 8pm



“Terrific… brilliantly igniting our imaginations” ~ Shakespeare’s Globe

Tell me my daughters… which of you shall we say doth love us most?

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 the edge of your seat and send you hurtling into its bloody centre.

Originally created for a sell-out show at The Hay Festival, toured internationally, and performed to great acclaim at Shakespeare’s Globe, this is storytelling at its most powerful and sublime.

Debs Newbold’s work brings together the poetic and the irreverent, the ancient and the defiantly modern. She 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.

“One unfeasibly talented woman” ~ Views From The Gods
