'Koning Lear en de narren van Shakespeare zijn kwaad' (King Lear and the jesters of Shakespeare are angry) - 't Barre Land
This review is about a performance I've seen on March 15 at Frascati. The show is called 'King Lear and the jesters of Shakespeare are angry' and is played by the theatre group 't Barre land. The performance is an adaption of the play 'King Lear' written by William Shakespeare. The play was written between 1603 and 1606 and later revised. It tells the story of King Lear who descends into madness after disposing of his estate between two of his three daughters based on their flattery, bringing tragic consequences for all. After the recovery of the monarch of England in 1660 the play was adapted many times because theatre makers didn't like the dark and depressing tone in the play. But after world war two the play was seen as one of Shakespeare's greatest plays, and the role of King Lear was played by many great actors.
The way that 't Barre land' performed this play is very different from how the play originally was
