What is identity based in when you strip everything else away? How do we identify inside all of our social and familial circles? How do we identify inside of ourselves?

Lear. is an exploration of one of Shakespeare's most daunting and famous texts, King Lear, combining the stylistic expression of the internationally renowned company Passion in Practice, New York Shakespeare Company and the "gritty, dirt on your knees Shakespeare" approach you've come to know and love from Seven Stages Shakespeare Company.

By exploring this play through the lens of Alzheimer's Disease, we hope to drive a dialogue about memory and legacy on a personal, communal and global level.  

Stripping the space to its bare bones, we'll explore one of Shakespeare's most daunting and famous texts-- the story of a family dealing with what they are all capable of in the face of inevitable loss and the power and beauty of forgiveness in those trying times.


The ensemble will be lead by Deb Kinghorn,  in the title role.

Directed by Dan Beaulieu
