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.

Lear/dementia looks at the issues King Lear raises from a contemporary perspective, focusing in particular on the understanding and experience of dementia today.
