LEAR ALONE by Frank Bramwell

LEAR ALONE by playwright, Frank Bramwell.


28th & 30th July – St Paul’s Church, Jewellery Quarter

29th & 31st July – Old Joint Stock Theatre

A thought-provoking reworking of the original play by Edinburgh Fringe award-winning Playwright Frank Bramwell, using the words of William Shakespeare.

Original music for the play composed, arranged, performed and produced by Mark Taylor:
