View Series Overview

Dreaming of Lear is a multi-media reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s tragedy filtered through the unconscious. It is a work of devised theatre in which participating artists reconstruct the play based on dreams they have while listening to recordings of King Lear. The production the audience experiences consists of recorded interviews with the ensemble of dreamers, fragments of Shakespeare's King Lear, and the realization of the ensemble’s dreams on stage. Dreaming of Lear is created in collaboration with Prison Performing Arts’ Alumni Company.

A limited number of free student tickets are available at the door beginning 1 hour before each performance.  General admission tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Metrotix.
