King Lear

  • Bootleg Theater 2220 Beverly Blvd Los Angeles (map)


By William Shakespeare

Source Material's staging of King Lear is a transgressive collage of devised material around Shakespeare's original text. Devoid of the title character, Source Material's King Lear leaves the cast of characters to navigate the tumultuous world in which the abuse of power reigns supreme. This production blurs the line between narrative and non-narrative, classical and original, in a highly visual meditation on the consequences of patriarchy, transfiguring that which is familiar into an elemental dreamscape.
