Notes:
'King Lear' is arguably the most complex and demanding play in the whole of Shakespeare. Once thought impossible to stage, today it is performed with increasing frequency, both in Britain and America. It has been staged more often in the last 50 years than in the previous 350 years of its performance history, its bleak message clearly chiming in with the growing harshness, cruelty and violence of the modern world. 'Performing King Lear' offers a very different and practical perspective from most studies of the play, as it is centred firmly on the reality of creation and performance, as seen through the eyes of a wide selection of today's leading actors and directors, including Nicholas Hytner, Adrian Noble, David Hare, Kenneth Brannagh, Deborah Warner, Derek Jacobi, Jonathan Miller, Dominic Dromgoole and Simon Russell Beale.
