SEPT 5 - 22

LEAR: That Old Man I Used to Know

Directed & ADAPTED by Beth Ann Hopkins

The Jeffrey and Paula Gural Theatre, A.R.T./New York Theatres
502 W 53rd St (10th Ave), New York, NY 10019

A young girl has run away to her Grandmother's attic, a space for forgotten objects covered with drop cloths and dusty time. When searching through a stack of old books, she opens one up to reveal that the words literally come alive off the pages as characters and creatures emerge around her and begin to tell her the story of King Lear. A classic story, retold through the eyes of a child.
