It’s business-as-usual when great tragedians – Laurence Olivier, Sir Ian McKellen, Paul Scofield – perform in productions like King Lear, but it’s unheard of for a great clown to tackle Shakespeare’s masterpiece … until now. With a career spanning decades, Geoff Hoyle is one of the nation’s most cherished and inventive masters of clowning. He trained under the “Father of French Mime” Etienne Decroux in Paris, originated the role of “Zazu” in The Lion King on Broadway, and has appeared in Cirque du Soleil, the Pickle Family Circus and Teatro ZinZanni. But all that training was a prelude to Lear’s Shadow. Experience King Lear like you never have before as the Jester (played by Hoyle), recently unemployed, tells his side to Shakespeare’s most tragic, cosmic and human of stories in this moving solo performance.
