Reviews for King Lear (alone)
"I left the theatre feeling like I’d been exposed to a flawed individual at their most honest – and that honesty is something as terrifying, courageous and honourable as ruling a nation..... the outstanding performance of Bob Young and Bramwell’s truthful presentation of humanity was well worth the watch.." - Laura Ellis
"King Lear (Alone) is a gripping production and the formidable performance given by Bob Young makes it compelling viewing." - Annie Power
"Much of the success of the play depends upon Bob Young’s performance. In accordance with the concept of the play he does not create any other characters than Lear but his facial expressions make clear how other people have reacted to the King’s demands. Unusually Young establishes a strong personality for Lear before the traumatic events that pushed him over the edge.
Bramwell faithfully sticks to the concept of filtering events through the consciousness of King Lear (Alone). He does not give in to temptation and include major speeches delivered by characters other than the king. Bramwell’s additions to the text are kept to a minimum and are more to allow Lear to review events and consider if things could have gone in a different direction." - David Cunningham
