QUEEN LEAR: HER STORY: A Play by James Keller
with Elinor Bell, Beth Chastain and Suzannah Wood
Two daughters claim their mother has dementia: Does she? They want to warehouse her. Do they succeed?
John Lahr (senior drama critic of The New Yorker magazine) called Keller's previous
production "Who's Afraid of Marcel Proust?", "A tour de force" and also, has said that "James Keller is the most well-read person I know."
James Keller has had a long career writing plays and poetry and teaching the classics: Greek drama; Homer and Dante; Shakespeare; Joyce; Chinese Ch'an, Japanese Zen and modern poetry; and cinema courses. He received two writing awards from the British Arts Council, and his plays have been performed in London, New York, and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
James is also the Artistic Director and Co-Founder of Poorplayers.org
and has been called "a stealth SF Bay Area Theatre Treasure and Master."
