(12 June @ 8.00pm) Online Shakespeare Demystified: KING LEAR (Added Show)

Description

We are back by popular demand!

Our first run on 25-28 May 2021 was a success! Audience feedback was very positive and encouraging. Many more wanted to watch the show but tickets were sold out.

Hence, we are back with this special run: 2 shows in one day.

What distinguishes this production from most online shows:
  1. It is done live. The actors are performing in real time--although in different venues--while the audience is watching. They audience can even see what is taking place behind the scene!
  2. The actors and the audience are sharing the same (virtual) space: ZOOM. They can see and speak to each other as in any live in-person show in a theatre.
  3. The show is interactive. We have moments when we invite the audience to come onto the virtual stage, to discuss and comment on what they see.
Still keeping to the format of our Shakespeare Demystified series, we will present canonical scenes and speeches from the play in the original text, all knit together by narration in contemporary English. The audience without any prior knowledge of the play or even Shakespeare will, at the end of the show, know the main plot, key characters and important themes. While those who know the play will find this a refreshing way of bringing Shakespeare online.


SYNOPSIS
King Lear, the aging ruler of England, divides his kingdom among his three daughters. He does so through a frivolous test, but the outcome catches him off guard. From there, his life spirals downhill.

Meanwhile, Edmund, an ambitious young man, and bastard son of Gloucester, does everything he can to become the next king of England. Everything seems to work in his favour.

How will the play end when these lives eventually cross paths?
