Description

UT/TAPS & The Dean’s Men present LEAR
Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Remy Solomon

It’s the near future. Three spears of light loom large in Logan Center Courtyard. They throw triple shadows on a body, buffeted by a storm: “Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!” Lear, once a monarch, wanders amidst mountains, old men, and matriarchs, as Shakespeare’s most relentless tragedy braves the elements to ask the question: how can those laid low speak truth to power, when broken bonds threaten to bring a nation to its knees?
