There is a fine balance to be achieved in every person's life. It is the decision of every individual to qualify where their balance lies. There are webs of imperfection, extremity, veiled truth and self-deceit that are slowly, carefully and brilliantly unwoven by a craftsman at his very best.
The setting of a boy's public school is pertinent and relevant with regards to the way characters connect with each other. It is equally powerful when you understand that these personalities exist, love, loathe and manipulate each other in every corner of society. Need, emptiness and grief are universal.
This is a subtle, devastating play. If you believe King Lear contains hope, then you will also be able to spot it at the end of this play as well.
