    “King Lear” is one of greatest works in Western literature, yet the challenges involved in performing Shakespeare’s tragic masterpiece mean that it is rarely performed in student theatre. Set in modern day England, ETG’s “King Lear” will thrive on verbal and visual accessibility. Regal lavishness and the proud pomp of archetypal Englishness will spiral into a nightmare as Lear casts goodness and compassion into the wilderness and malice takes up the reins of power. The modern world of England will slowly collapse into a timeless Gothicism; everything and everyone being stripped of colour and distorted, leaving behind a terrifying skeleton of all things English.

    With a reputation for pushing the boundaries of innovation and creating truly imaginative and utterly polished productions of great Shakespeare tales, this winter’s ETG tour of Europe looks set to be one of the most ambitious ever.
