Following our Edinburgh run, we were awarded an Owle Schreame Award 2014 for innovation in classical theatre.
Praise for Lear’s Daughters:
‘Dispelling the complexities of Shakespearean language and hitting the nail right on the head, Isabelle Kettle’s production of Lear’s Daughters is exactly how Shakespeare should be handled – with innovation, great understanding and packed full of humanity’ – Alexandra Spencer-Jones, ActionToTheWord.
★★★★ Broadway Baby
‘a haunting, alarming and moving piece of drama… with their creative use of space, strong individual characterisation, and in the bold re-working of a text, this work should send an audience away desperate to grab a copy of King Lear and read it with very different eyes.’
★★★★ Plays to See
‘original and very effective… a fantastic adaptation…they have the audience’s undivided attention.’
★★★★ Edfringe Review
‘the performance [has] a depth and integrity that is astounding… an incredible and fresh adaptation of a very well known play’
★★★★ The Public Reviews
‘stripped of the dynastic complications of Shakespeare’s text, this speaks even more powerfully to a contemporary audience…an ingenious adaptation’
