Laer's Last Prayer
Constructed as a minimalist retelling of Shakespeare's King Lear, the piece functions as a collage with lines from King Lear, Twelfth Night, the Book of Job, nursery rhymes, and other found texts held together with the glue of clowning, music and creative design. This new play confronts the question of what happens to our parents after they slip beyond our care examining what old age means with the advent of technology able to sustain the body longer than the mind was designed to endure. Growing old is part of the human condition and Laer's Last Prayer celebrates its journey through a lyrical staging filled with laughter, frustration, confusion, and love.

"Jamie Bragg evokes a lovely vulnerability as Jack's dead sister Jill..."
Kerry Reid - Chicago Reader
