King Lear
UNIVERSITY OF ADELAIDE THEATRE GUILD presents
King Lear

16 Aug 2024 to 25 Aug 2024

William Shakespeare's
KING LEAR

Directed by Brant Eustice

16 - 25 August 2024

Little Theatre

 

Reimagined in a post-apocalyptic setting, this Shakespeare epic unfolds amidst the madness of a world in ruins.

As Lear descends into insanity and his daughters' ambitions spiral out of control, Adelaide’s finest talent explore the desperation of characters grappling with power, betrayal, excessive pride, and the collapse of civilisation.
 

Director Brant Eustice says, “There is enormous joy to be found in Shakespeare’s universal themes and a brilliance in his writing which not only allows, but also encourages theatregoers to continue exploring the depth, complexity and beauty of his stories in new styles.  Due to a global calamity, civilisation as we view it has collapsed and has returned to the ways of a distant past. We find ourselves in a world which is slowly trying to rebuild itself.”
