GEMMA PAIGE NORTH / LEAR/CORDELIA


Featuring

You can see GEMMA PAIGE NORTH perform in 1623 THEATRE CO’s experimental double-bill and exciting new production LEAR/CORDELIA where she plays Cordelia.

Lear/Cordelia explores Shakespeare’s King Lear in the context of dementia.  The double-bill is a a radical reworking of King Lear followed by Cordelia, a new play from the perspective of Lear’s youngest daughter.

Lear has dementia. His children never visit him. He forbids it, ever since they betrayed him and he disowned them many years ago. So what happens when Cordelia – his youngest, whose betrayal was the greatest – knocks on his door? Why has she come back? What’s her story? And is there any chance of reconciliation?

Lear/Cordelia plays Friday 14 October (8pm) and Saturday 15 October (2.30pm and 7.30pm) 2016 at Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester LE1 7HA and Friday 18 November (8pm) and Saturday 19 November (2pm and 8pm) 2016 at Derby Theatre Studio, Derby DE1 2NF.
