Playing Lear

Forsideomslag
Nick Hern Books, 2003 - 211 sider

The book is both an in-depth analysis of the play, in which Davies looks at the many possible interpretations of both play and character, and a rehearsal diary in which we see the author's personal journey through the role, from when he played Lear for the Almeida Theatre in 2002.
