KZYX presents The Independent Eye Theatre Ensembles version of William Shakespeares King Lear. Played out within the confines of an aluminum cage, King Lear and The Fool are accompanied by twenty-eight life-sized hand and finger puppets operated by Conrad Bishop and Elizabeth Fuller. This stunning two-person take on King Lear puts an ingenious spin on The Bards tragic tale of power and distorted love.
King Lear is the puppeteer of his own puppet show, obsessively playing out his loss of family, power, friendship, shelter, sanity, and hope. The Fool, an acid clown who goads Lear in his desperation, stage-manages his story until they both succumb to Lears madness.
The show is at the Caspar Community Center, Sunday, April 10th at 7p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door and can be purchased at Out Of This World in Mendocino, Harvest Market in Fort Bragg, & at Brown Paper Tickets.com. This performance is not recommended for children under 14.
