Fiercely talented contemporary New York playwright Young Jean Lee has written a freaky, postmodern take on Shakespeare’s greatest play, King Lear. As Lee describes her highly original version: “the kids are in the palace, they’ve just kicked the fathers out into the storm; they pretend they’re fine, then realize they’re not.” This is a strange, funny, deeply moving meditation on children and their fathers.
Young Jean Lee visited Duke February 16 to meet and work with the cast and creative team.
