The Shadow King (2014)
23 January 2014 – 26 January 2014 Bay 17 at Carriageworks
Based on Shakespeare's King Lear
Malthouse Theatre, CarriageWorks, Sydney Festival,
Theatre Remount Co-Production
Epic and provocative, The Shadow King reworks Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy King Lear as a sprawling, blood-soaked tale of two Indigenous families in Australia’s north.
Weaving a parable that echoes our nation’s history, this ambitious new production is truly unmissable theatre of a scale and significance to match the land on which it’s made.
This production toured to Bay 17, Carriageworks, New South Wales.
