8:00pm at Guildhall
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
“We’ve lost the beautiful words.”
In an abandoned space where nobody goes, three performers stand silently on stage, anticipating an audience. They’re ill rehearsed, they can’t find the words, and though they’re not ready to show, it must go on.
Tick-tock goes the clock. We’re sorry. So very, very sorry. Ladies and Gentlemen…’Three'”

Performed by Mikhail Lim, Charlotte Goodlad and Jonathan Curd. ‘Three’ Combining the influences of Samuel Beckett, the Rat Pack and Dr. Suess, ‘Three’ is an intertextual performance that plays with the nonsensical phono-aesthetics of every-day language and 1950’s pop culture.
