Armed with only a drum, a guitar, a knife and a chair, the tragic trajectory of Lear’s demise is presented to you from the point of view of his long suffering and ever-loyal fool.
The bastard Edmund, haughty Goneril, poor deluded Gloucester, oily Oswald, sweet Cordelia, mad Tom – all the characters from this sad and sorry tale brought to glorious life before your very eyes.
Blindness, betrayal, delusion, deceit, love, loyalty, lust and greed –it’s all here in this fast paced, funny, poignant and ultimately heartbreaking production.

Mazymeg and Honey Bees by Angel Heart Theatre
Albert lives with his honey bees on Dartmoor, a mysterious land where nothing is as it seems.
One day a stranger appears and steals Albert’s beloved bees and it’s as though the light has gone from his world. But someone else visits Albert, a little Pixie girl called Mazymeg. She promises to find his bees, for she knows who the stranger is – Dark Dewer, the wicked wizard of the Moor.
Weaving threads of Devon folklore and song, a soundtrack by Dartmoor musicians and shape-shifting puppetry, Mazymeg is a spell-binding tale from an ancient land.
