Christmas at the Lears’, 2014. The king is upstaged as Shakespeare’s tragedy is told through the eyes of its female protagonists.

Combining live music with Shakespeare’s original text, Lear’s Daughters tackles the domestic heartbreak at the centre of this much-loved tale. Follow three sisters as they struggle to look after their ailing father whilst asserting themselves in what was once a man’s world.

“We are his flesh, his blood, his daughters – or rather a disease that’s in his flesh, that I must needs call mine”

Fresh from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014, Footfall Theatre present their sell-out, award-winning reworking of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy.
