What if the great story of King Lear were told through the eyes of his closest companion? In this award-winning and internationally acclaimed one-woman tour-de-force, Susanna Hamnett plays the Fool - and every other character - to tell a story that is by turns poignant, mischievous, tragic and hilarious.
‘Magical, operatic, world-class theatre.’ Five ***** Edinburgh Guide
“An extraordinary rendition of King Lear unfolded on the stage last night at Riverside, Studios, where a single performer (Susanna Hammett) magnificently embodied all characters with a contagious vitality and captivating energy. Each role came to life with such brilliance that it left me utterly awe struck and grateful that I had been in the audience too see it . This not-to-be-missed performance is a testament to the artist's remarkable talent and the transformative power of theater." - Joe M.
