'King Lear' Reviewed

Our production of 'King Lear' has received a rave review from the Derby Evening Telegraph, with particular praise for Director Chris Scott and for Jenny Earl in the title role:

"Earl excels in the dual roles of tormented mother and despairing monarch, emphasising that whether King or commoner, the trauma of loss is equally profound. Her portrayal of mental breakdown is always believable as she struggles through states of anger and outrage, then remorse, for a lost child.

The clarity and power of her delivery makes Shakespeare's text a joy to engage with, in what is one the Bard's most demanding roles. She fully embraces the physicality of the part, whether it be with regal posturing, or displaying the vulnerability and bewilderment that can come with old age."
