King Lear in Brooklyn: An Evening with Michael Pennington
Sunday, 4th June 2017, 19:00
St Peter's Church, Oundle, PE8 4AL
Come and hear one of the world’s leading Shakespearean actors, Michael Pennington who appeared triumphantly as King Lear in New York in 2014, talk about his latest book for one evening only in Oundle.
King Lear in Brooklyn, published in June 2016, is Pennington’s meditations on grappling with Shakespeare’s greatest role, and gives a fascinating insight into the punishing mental and physical impact the role can have on those who are brave enough to take on the challenge.
Pennington examines the relationships between the cast and the characters they play, and explores the director’s approach to Lear and that of the other actors. We see the production develop and unfurl through the eyes of an English actor playing the lead in an otherwise all-American cast.
Funny, personal and deeply honest, Pennington’s account is also probing and scholarly - there is no greater insight into Shakespeare’s greatest role. This is the work of one of our most sublime actor-writers at the top of his game.
Michael Pennington has played Hamlet, Timon of Athens, Berowne, Angelo, Richard II, Coriolanus, Macbeth, Henry V and Leontes in The Winter’s Tale. Together with director Michael Bogdanov, he founded the English Shakespeare Company in 1986 and was its Joint Artistic Director until 1992.
In April 2004 he became the second actor to deliver the British Academy’s annual Shakespeare lecture. The lecture was entitled Barnadine's Straw: The Devil in Shakespeare's Detail.
