5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant reworking of a Shakespearean Masterpiece, 1 July 2002
With adaptations of Shakespeare's works becoming the new vogue it is refreshing to go back to basics. And Edward Bond's 'Lear' does just that.
It is a retelling of the maestro's classic 'King Lear' and follows very much the same story line but updates it slightly so it can be understood by all.
The play is about power and love and contains everything that you would expect from a good Shakespearean tragedy (namely very few people left on their feet by the end of the play)
This version of the play is indispensible on it's own, but is also very useful for those studying the play 'King Lear'and are finding it difficult to get the hang of Shakespeare's language and settings.
