Bag&Baggage presents the North American premiere of artistic director Scott Palmer's adaptation of the Shakespearean tragedy (head to NWCTC to see a more traditional approach first). It combines inspiration from the Bard's source material, the anonymous play The True Chronicle History of King Leir and His Three Daughters, with text from a number of other sources, both ancient and more modern, "to create a story that focuses on the small, intimate family drama at the heart of Shakespeare’s great tragedy," says Palmer. The play was originally performed when Palmer was artistic director of Glasgow Repertory Company and was hailed by the Scotsman Newspaper as "a 21st century Lear to cherish."
