Dorchester Arts presents: King Lear Retold, Debs Newbold

Performance storyteller Debs Newbold brings Shakespeare vividly to life in a powerhouse solo performance of the Bard's deepest and most moving tragedy.

On a simple, bare stage, using no set script Debs creates a 'cinema of the imagination' which will hold you spellbound. A story of human frailty and love, King Lear Retold catapults its audiences into the turbulent world of a man who gives up his life's work and in doing so, losed himself. Building on a passionate command of Shakespeare's verse, Debs takes the audience on a journey through this dramatic, shocking and deeply human story. This is Shakespeare retold for everyone - especially those who think Shakespeare is not for them.

Tickets £12/£10/£5 live for 5 from http://www.dorchesterarts.co.uk

This Year's Events

Feedback

My wife and I really enjoyed our first visit to DLF to hear Henry Bloefeld. Having looked through the programme further we wished we should have chosen more, but at least we shall try to get the books via the Library. Looking forward to seeing next year’s programme.

I felt truly privileged to be able to enjoy so many events in your excellent programme...quite sumptuous! Had I been able to, I would have booked every event!

Feedback From 2016 Festival

All of us in the Hardy Society were very positive about 'our' first night and the subsequent events. I thought Tony's event with Rachel and Dinah worked very well with interesting conversations from the both of the women.

You and Paul must be very happy with the positive way Dorchester people are continuing to embrace the Festival, and in impressively increasing numbers. Congratulations to both of you.

Next year's dates are already in our diaries and we are looking forward to meeting up with you soon to discuss our involvement.
