O matter and impertinency mixed! Reason in madness!
Lear is not having a good week. A storm is brewing and he’s running with the wolves. He’s old, he’s cold and his daughters aren’t talking to him. You can’t rule the world, if you can’t remember where your shoes are. It seems in this kingdom when you’re old and grey, suddenly, you’re in the way.
Run of the Mill Theatre collaborate with the participants of Pathways Programme, St. John of Gods Liffey Region to present a unique exploration and reworking of Shakespeare’s King Lear, created and performed by an ensemble of theatre makers with intellectual disabilities. Exploring themes of aging, vulnerability, mental health, power and responsibility, Reason in Madness is a colourful, evocative and unique take on one of Shakespeare’s most challenging pieces.

Supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.

Suitable for ages 10+
