Armed with only a drum, a guitar, a knife and a chair, the tragic trajectory of Lear’s demise is presented to you from the point of view of his long suffering and ever-loyal fool. The bastard Edmund, haughty Goneril, poor deluded Gloucester, oily Oswald, sweet Cordelia, mad Tom – all the characters from this sad and sorry tale are brought to glorious life before your very eyes. Blindness, betrayal, delusion, deceit, love, loyalty, lust and greed; it’s all here in this fast paced, funny, poignant and ultimately heartbreaking production, told with all of Oddbodies’ trademark physical ingenuity and visual flair.
* Physical theatre, improvisation and characterisation workshop with Oddbodies on Sat 19 Oct at Stour Connect
