Staged amidst the industrial majesty of the Carrie Blast Furnaces, this tight, physical edit of Shakespeare’s text continues Quantum’s tradition of re-envisioning Shakespeare and highlighting the vastness and intimacy of this iconic portrayal of grief, loss, family values gone awry, and descent into madness. King Lear stars Jeffrey Carpenter, Bricolage Production Company’s Artistic Director and Founder, as Lear and Tami Dixon, Bricolage Production Company’s Principal Creative and Co-Founder, as The Fool, alongside a stellar local cast.
