King Lear

Jonjo played Edmund in this production by Rupert Goold. King Lear ran from 30 October 2008 to 28 March 2009.

‘Pete Postlethwaite returned to his theatrical roots to tackle Shakespeare’s greatest role. Two families tear themselves apart and a community teeters on the verge of disintegration in this intimate and provocative staging of the most elemental tragedy ever written.

Celebrating Liverpool Capital of Culture 2008 and the explosive, punkish aesthetic of the Everyman Theatre, the show captured the spirit and atmosphere of an extraordinary city and a unique theatrical space.

King Lear was a co-production with Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse and the Young Vic’ (Headlong, 2008).
