This course requires confident English speaking skills and consists of ten practical acting workshops. Lear's "darker purpose" - to divide his kingdom into three parts, giving the most generous portion to the daughter who says she loves him most is the trigger for the tragedy which follows. We explore this extraordinary play from an actor's point of view, always focusing on Shakespeare's dramatic language: "Letting the words do the work." (This is a double course which can only be taken with Sb1.)
