Background


This production marks the exciting debut of Yard Players, a new vibrant company, creating vivid, accessible productions of classics.

Synopsis


Lear is retiring.


He cannot stand in the way of progress.


But dividing his vast empire between his daughters comes at a cost.


Now he must navigate a treacherous path leading to refuge or madness.


Yard Players present a new interpretation of an epic story of loss, growing old and new beginnings.


Set in a modern Britain where family ties are stretched thin and business brings blood, we visit the stark reality of an ever divisive dog-eat-dog society.
