November 2007 Production

by William Shakespeare

 22nd - 24th November 2007

Directed by Lionel Elton

The Bovingdon Players' Autumn 2007 production was King Lear.

Considered one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies and one of the greatest plays in world drama, this promised to be a fantastic experience for cast and audience alike.

Planning and preparations for this ambitious production began almost a year ahead, including some radical stage design, original music and expert fight choreography, not to mention a large cast with challenging lines to learn and a Director with very particular ideas about what he wants!  No-one cme to blows, except where Will intended anyway, and it shapED up into a very impressive show.

Performances were in the Bovingdon Memorial Hall from 7.30 p.m. on Thursday 22 November, Friday 23 November and Saturday 24 November. 

Tickets (8 or 6 concessions) were available from the box office. Customers were offered to check out a seating plan before they booked their tickets?
