Brooklyn College Department of Theatre Presents

Lee's "Lear"

December 7-12

Lee's "Lear"

In a “collision between Shakespeare’s King Lear, Sesame Street, and a father’s mortality,” Young Jean Lee’s absurdist tragedy Lear focuses on Edmund, Edgar, Cordelia, Regan, and Goneril right after they’ve exiled their fathers (King Lear and Gloucester) from the kingdom. As the afterglow of their newly found autonomy begins to fade, the creeping gravity of their actions seeps in, fraying the very reality of their world and the play itself.

Lee received an MFA in 2006 from the Playwriting program at Brooklyn College. Her play Straight White Men is being produced by Second Stage Theater, making her the first Asian American female playwright produced on Broadway.

Directed by Chris McCreary
