About the Show/Event
Information for Primary Shakespeare - King Lear at Orange Tree Theatre, Outer London (Play). Primary Shakespeare is performed by four professional actors to an audience of children who have attended a series of Shakespeare workshops at school. The adapted version is a great opportunity for the children's first experience of a performance of a Shakespeare play. The public performance of the production is a special chance for adults and children alike to enjoy Shakespeare. Tell me, my daughters - Which of you shall we say doth love us most? Two families caught in a storm of words, divided by misjudged loyalties and sibling rivalries. Warring brothers, wicked sisters and powerless fathers discover too late that love can't be measured. Shakespeare's greatest tragedy abridged for a younger audience.
