King Lear by William Shakespeare adapted by Jo Emery

“After a long, successful career, the ageing Lear is dividing up his Property Development business empire between his three daughters.  The onset of dementia has made his behaviour erratic and dangerous and threats of a hostile French Corporate take-over bid are circling.  His rash decision to give up all his power has devastating and fatal consequences for him, his family and Executives.  A modern day, reduced version of the classic Shakespearean tragedy, referencing mental health, homelessness and knife crime.
