About the Play

A Noh version of King Lear, the play strips the language of the play down to Cordelia and the fool – looking at notions of the warrior and revenge from the perspective of the disenfranchised.

Cordelia is as a phantom, a being whose body has died but who is caught on a low plane of existence.  Most phantoms in Noh cling to the memory of their incarnate life and this brings them back to the scene of their most intense misery.  Perhaps in the kingdom of death, she will be reminded of what in life she so passionately and wisely knew and can find the meaning of life and in fact, be.

Director: Jubilith Moore, San Francisco
