World Premiere #67

a new play inspired by King Lear

It’s ninety minutes before the start of the tale we’ve come to know as King Lear. The old king’s wife, Queen Mair, has asked her three daughters and their nurse to join her in her private bedchamber, to say farewell to the youngest, gentle Cordelia, whose hand is about to be given in marriage.

But there are other farewells to be taken, and painful secrets that must be revealed, before young Cordelia will be on her way.
