Portland Shakespeare Project presents an ambitious second summer of producing with The Season of Lear -- two shows, playing in rotating repertory. The Season of Lear includes an inventive adaptation of William Shakespeare's King Lear written by award-winning local playwright C.S. Whitcomb, and a startling new staging of Shakespeare's classic King Lear using only six actors and keeping the original text intact. BroadwayWorld has a first look at KING'S LEAR, opening July 18 on the Morrison Stage at Artists Repertory Theatre through August 5.  

The story of King Lear, directed by Jon Kretzu, will be told in an imaginative restaging using only six actors, while keeping all of Shakespeare's original language and imagery.

Tim Blough plays the part of Lear, and he is joined by Dainichia Noreault as Cordelia, Dana Millican as Regan, Allison Tigard as Goneril, Grant Byington as Gloucester, and Matt Kerrigan as Edgar.

Performance times are Wednesdays through Fridays at 7:30 pm, Saturdays at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm, and Sundays at 2:00 pm. Single ticket prices are $30 for adult tickets and $18 for student tickets.  Please see www.portlandshakes.org for exact dates and times of performances and for ticket sales.

Portland Shakespeare Project is a nonprofit theatre company dedicated to educating, enriching and entertaining audiences by producing classical works and contemporary works associated with classical material. Portland Shakespeare Project is committed to using dedicated, professional, local actors and technicians.
