Through fragmented images, snatched conversations and half remembered events, York St John’s second year theatre students have created their production as a reconsidering of William Shakespeare’s King Lear.  It has been composed in response to the student’s recent secular pilgrimage to Auschwitz; to try and answer the question “how will we remember when all the witnesses are gone?”

This work is presented as part of the York International Shakespeare Festival.

Please note that the meeting point for this event is York St John University, we will then walk to The Guildhall for the performance. More information
