Re-imagining Lear

Lear is complex, it’s intricate, it’s difficult.
So, we’ve made a few changes.

In his 2013 Season directing debut, David Blue Garrison has adapted this famously challenging script into a solid, visceral piece. With biting dialogue, a new kingdom, a stage ruled by women, and a queen at the helm, this cast of fresh faces and TAAC familiars have re imagined Shakespeare’s tale of love, betrayal and awareness.

As you follow Lear into the battered world of her own making, you’ll find yourself lost in the honesty of the performances, the gravity of the decisions at hand, the height of the stakes. Forget everything you’ve ever learned about King Lear. TAAC’s latest adaptation boasts the grit of Hamlet and the beauty of The Tempest.

We’ve pulled out all of the stops on this one.

Join us in Lear’s inconstant world. Just don’t get lost.

Lear opens August 8th @8PM, and continues through the 24th @ 8PM, with Sunday shows @7PM. Please note our theater is very small. To ensure yourself a spot, we suggest you purchase tickets for $15 plus a small service charge atbrownpapertickets.com$10 until August 1st. And Fridays always $10. Box office will open 1/2 hour before scheduled showtime for will-call pick up and sales of remaining tickets. The theater is located on the corner of Oxford St. & Lea Way in Sacramento 95815.
