LEAR ALONE fundraiser for Crisis UK

28th & 29th January 7.30pm

Watch award-winning web series LEAR ALONE on the big screen to help us raise funds for our charity partners Crisis UK and meet the team who made it happen.

LEAR ALONE is a one-man reworking of King Lear presented in partnership with Crisis UK and supported using public funding by Arts Council England. Using just Lear’s lines from the first folio of Shakespeare’s well-known tragedy, LEAR ALONE explores themes of loneliness, aging and homelessness: a study of one man’s vulnerability as he confronts and negotiates a digital world.

Performed by Edmund Dehn, directed by Anthony Shrubsall, filmed by Charles Teton and produced by Sarah Lawrie for And Tomorrow Theatre Company, LEAR ALONE was filmed during lockdown and released on YouTube as a five-part web series in August 2021, going on to win the ‘Best Series’ OnComm at the Off West End Awards 2022. Presented in association with Elysium Theatre Company, Scenesaver and Denville Hall.

‘LEAR ALONE asks for a theatre that is unafraid to be explicit about its moral and political persuasions: a theatre that refuses to leave any one on their own.’ – The Observer

‘If there’s ever a time we should support digital theatre, it is now. And it is this.’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐– London Pub Theatres
