About the event

A Catholic asylum. 1963. A patient attempts to process their grief; the denial, the anger, the darkness.

Will transference lead to acceptance? Can peopling this world with princes and dukes ease the pain? Can reliving the story of King Lear bring comfort? Derby Shakespeare Theatre Company presents Shakespeare's timeless tragedy.

Contains violence and nudity.
