Being Human in King Lear – V2

This panel discussion will feature Dr Erin Sullivan in conversation with 1623 theatre company, who in 2013-14 have been working on a new Arts Council-funded project called Lear/dementia.
The project takes its inspiration from Shakespeare’s King Lear, which itself questions the nature of the human mind and what happens to it as a result of ageing, trauma, and loss. Lear/dementia looks at the issues King Lear raises from a contemporary perspective, focusing in particular on the understanding and experience of dementia today.
