THE FOOL’S LEAR

FoolsLearTHE FOOL’S LEAR

By Randy Neale

A Phoenix Theatre Ensemble - Nomad Theatrical - Co-Production

Randy Neale’s funny and poignant comedic drama follows the journey of Lear and his Fool as their story travels alongside the path of one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies, exploring the byways between the familiar onstage scenes. Playwright Randy Neale says… “It is a story of fathers and children, aging and death, and the folly of all those who think they rule their own lives. It is about the end of power and the end of life as lived by a clown, whether that clown is a fool or a king.”

“The Fool’s Lear is a delight and a must-see comic drama”
“Blew the socks off Saturday night’s crowd and had us roaring with laughter.”
