More wit, mischief and sheer playfulness than you can legally pack into 80 minutes of live theatre!’

Aberdeen Press and Journal

A one-woman tour-de-force, actress and clown Susanna Hamnett relates the great and tragic story of King Lear from the personal perspective of the king’s fool, Norris. Braving the most savage storm in English literature with breathtaking hilarity and heartache, she honors the Bard’s beautiful language while simultaneously upending expectations of what a Shakespearean play “should” be. Profound, accessible, and fun, the show’s exuberant storytelling, music, and projected film take young audiences firmly into the heart of the masterpiece, rendering it as poignant as always—but also mischievous, tender and achingly funny!
