"I am a woman more sinn'd against than sinning." From the dewy moors and swirling mists of an ancient land comes a tale of madness, magic, betrayal, war, love, and the quest for a tortured soul's ultimate dignity. Lear, the vain tribal Queen and Shamaness of the Pictish Orcades, foolishly abdicates her throne, dividing the land between her three daughters. But an act of simple humility soon casts the realm into chaos, and Lear becomes a helpless pawn in a bloody grab for absolute power. Lear as you've never seen it before, this unforgettable gender-bending adaptation of Shakespeare's greatest tragedy is accompanied by an original score of haunting, heart-pounding music that will appeal to fans of Enya and Clannad.
