Hadestown
Hadestown

Written by indie singer songwriter Anais Mitchell and brought to vivid life by experimental theatre director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812), the musical began its life as a touring concert and concept album before taking to the stage at the New York Theatre Workshop in 2016.

King Lear
King Lear

In a world ravaged by global warming, pandemics, and natural disaster, King Lear is a man who has brought his country through turmoil, but at what cost? Following his award-winning, sold-out performance as Dick Gregory in Turn Me Loose, Joe Morton returns to The Wallis in the titular role of one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies. The timeless story of ignorance, deceit and the struggle for power sees Lear, an aging king and father, reject the child who truly loves him and is unable to see beyond the lies of his eldest daughters. Lear's blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends. Paranoia runs deep, and sanity seems scarce, and yet, the play's end provides hope for what is to come after the storm.
