The Marsh is thrilled to present the premiere of Lear’s Shadow, the sublime new solo show from award-winning actor/playwright Geoff Hoyle. It may be unheard of for a great clown to tackle Shakespeare’s masterpiece, but audiences are experiencing King Lear like never before as the Jester (played by Hoyle), recently unemployed, tells his side of Shakespeare’s most tragic, cosmic, and human of stories in this poignant solo performance. Let one of the Bay Area’s theatrical legends tickle your funny bone and break your heart as he simultaneously depicts The Fool, the King, and all three of his daughters, playing his own original music with a storm of vocal sound effects.
