Nothing Like Lear is a devised performance based on Shakespeare’s King Lear, this solo act sees King Lear through the eyes of a clown and views him as a man, a father, an outcast, and as a child. A fool is seen through the eyes of a fool with a single actor on stage, an old clown: an entire life is lived within the tempest of theatre.

The search for Lear brings us to the eye of the storm - the self. Memories are unraveled, stories half-sung, a whirlwind ensues where Shakespeare’s pages are strewn about only to resurface as a murky collage, a flight of dreams is plunged into darkness, a daughter is lost to the mountains of the past and so many lifetimes are relived to arrive at one single moment of preciousness. This is a search for a contemporary tale of a father and daughter.
