Nothing Will Come of Nothing: The Lear Project

Nothing Will Come of Nothing: The Lear Project

Directed by Philip Thompson


March 15-18, 2018

Experimental Media Performance Lab (xMPL)

Sometimes the emotional weight of a great text can prevent us from really hearing what's being spoken. The actors, the sets and costumes, and we as an audience can become so wrapped up in the feeling of the play, that it's difficult to really attend to what’s being said, and to hear it as if for the first time. For King Lear, a play obsessed with the stripping away of layers of identity and attachment, this is particularly problematic. In this intimate, stripped-down production, we hope to make it possible for audiences to hear the play more simply and immediately.
