WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
What if the great story of King Lear was told by his closest companion? In this one-woman tour de force, actress Susanna Hamnett plays the Fool--and every other character--to tell a very personal and poignant story that borrows from the words of "that guy William Shakespeare." Susanna braves the most savage storm in English literature with breathtaking hilarity and heartache, honoring the beautiful language of Lear while taking a bit of poetic license. Co-created by Susanna and Edith Tankus with initial development in association with Kneehigh Theatre (Brief Encounter; Rapunzel, New Vic 2008), Nearly Lear upends expectations of what a Shakespeare play should be.
