Lost Lear – Previews: 28-29 September 2022. Dates: 28 September – 8 October see DTF website for details.
All at once fast paced and thought-provoking, Lost Lear lands us into the world of Joy, a woman with dementia, who is being cared for through a method where people live inside an old memory.
Following the national and international tour of A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings, Dan Colley and his company have turned their sights on a very (very) loose adaptation of King Lear, examining the self and that part of us that’s inaccessible to others.
“Who is it that can tell me who I am?” — King Lear, Act I Scene IV
