based on King Lear by William Shakespeare

Company: Close Theatre Club

Venue: Close Theatre, Glasgow

Performance dates: 24th November to 9th December, 1972

Synopsis: The Close Theatre Club "have taken a thread from Shakespeare's King Lear and have begun to investigate the theme of filial ingratitude and parental egocentricity. The aim of the project is for the actors to remain as flexible and receptive as in rehearsal. In this way we hope that the audience can be involved in the experience of the actors' working progress.”
