The Kingdom of Lear: a place dominated by decadence, wealth, liquor, and jazz. The ageing Lear must divide his kingdom between his three daughters, but when Cordelia, the youngest of the three, is unable to express her love for the King, things begin to spiral out of the old King’s control.
Taking inspiration from the 1920s and with original Jazz music, House on the Hill Productions brings a freshness and originality while remaining true to Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy.
Using the entire archeological space of the Rose, Lear will show this historic space in a way never seen before.
