A SMITH STREET STAGE
Presentation at THE GURAL THEATER, A.R.T. - September 2019
Currently in Workshop
Adapted & Directed by Beth Ann Hopkins
A young girl has run away to her Grandmother's attic, a space for forgotten objects covered with drop cloths and dusty time. When searching through a stack of old books, she opens one up to reveal that the words literally come alive off the pages as characters and creatures emerge around her and begin to tell her the story of King Lear. A classic story, retold through the eyes of a child. The innocence of the child's viewpoint juxtaposes the harsh realities of the play's events, creating a coming of age tale in which life's cruelties and acts of heroism are revealed.
