Originally devised in 1987 by the Women’s Theatre Group in collaboration with Elaine Feinstein, Lear’s Daughters tells the story of what happened to King Lear’s three girls, Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia, before they made their entrances in Shakespeare’s classic play. The daughters, isolated from their busy parents, find themselves under the care of a nanny who brings sustenance in the form of storytelling. This provocative play explores innocence turned to tragic cynicism. It is a playful but serious modern parable for our time.
