From Wednesday 6 May at 7pm we will stream a recording of our popular 2019 production of Jack Lear.
Written by Ben Benison based on Shakespeare’s King Lear, the production was directed by Hull-born, Hull Truck Theatre Patron, Barrie Rutter who also played the title role, and featured music by folk legend Eliza Carthy. This recording was captured during a live performance with an audience at Hull Truck Theatre on 30 January 2019. It was originally streamed for free to a closed audience of patients and residents in hospitals and care homes in Hull as part of our commitment to opening up access to theatre.
“action-packed, laughter-rousing drama” The Observer on Jack Lear, 2019
“With its mentions of myth, along with the superstitions of Hull’s fishing community, this family drama has the weight of an ancient epic.” The Stage on Jack Lear, 2019
Those who are able to will have the opportunity to show their support for the theatre by donating to the Hull Truck Theatre Future Fund.
