Debs Newbold is one of the UK’s most exciting and skilled writer-performers, creating playful, thoughtful work that can get deep under the skin. Her solo pieces have played venues as diverse as the Royal Opera House, the British Library, the Southbank Centre, Hay Festival and Shakespeare’s Globe theatre, as well as many prestigious theatres and festivals in the UK, US and Europe.

In this dark and challenging, epic and shocking, human and uplifting retelling of the legend of Lear, King of the Britons, Debs channels her love of Shakespeare’s language to whip up a great storm that will send you hurtling into its bloody centre...

Tell me my daughters...which of you shall we say doth love us most?
