Lear / Cordelia

1623 Theatre Company
Friday 18 November 2016 - Saturday 19 November 2016

Lear has dementia.

His children never visit him. He forbids it, ever since they disobeyed him and he disowned them many years ago. So what happens when Cordelia - his youngest, whose betrayal was the greatest - knocks on his door? Why has she come back? What is her story? And is there any chance of reconciliation?

Lear/Cordelia is an experimental double-bill: a radical reworking of Shakespeare's King Lear followed by Cordelia, a new play from the perspective of Lear's youngest daughter.

Friday 18 November, 8pm - BSL Interpreted performance and post-show discussion
Saturday 19 November, 2pm - Dementia Friendly performances (including a touch tour of set, meet the cast beforehand, and a brief post show Q&A)
