Set in the Corporate world, Lear is the CEO dividing up his Property Development business empire between his three daughters. The onset of dementia has made his behaviour erratic and dangerous and threats of a hostile French Corporate take-over bid are circling. His rash decision to give up all his power has devastating and fatal consequences for him, his family and Executives.

The adaptation brings the play up to date into our current era, and references themes of mental health, homelessness and knife crime. Originally performed at the Pump House Theatre from 12th to 15th May 2021 as a live stream production, and streamed at the Watford Fringe form October 1st to 3rd.
