Let the madness of creativity take hold: enter our Crazy Composition Competition for a chance to win a pair of opening night tickets for King Lear!
Anticipation is growing for our 2014 season, and we can’t wait to present the twelve stunning productions this coming year as we explore the theme of Madness: Minds Pushed to the Edge. Our Artistic Director, Antoni Cimolino, has carefully selected a playbill that has something for everyone. Shakespeare lovers will be mad for King Lear, Antony and Cleopatra, King John and two wildly different versions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, while musical aficionados will go nuts for Crazy for You and Man of La Mancha. The merry madness continues with Restoration comedy making its first return to our stages in over a decade with The Beaux’ Stratagem. Rounding out the lunacy – ranging from the fantastical to the highly dramatic – is Alice Through the Looking-Glass, Hay Fever, Mother Courage and Her Children and Christina, The Girl King.
We will give you and a friend opening night tickets to King Lear on May 26, 2014, two Shakespeare-lover’s journals and two copies of King Lear. All you have to do for a chance to win this unique experience is to put quill to parchment… (Okay, okay – pen to paper or fingers to your keyboard!) …and write a few lines of poetry.
Watch here as Colm Feore discusses the madness of Lear in King Lear!
