Jack Lear: Northern Stage


Follow a gritty reworking of Shakespeare’s King Lear set on the River Humber when Jack Lear is performed between 12th and 16th February 2019 at Northern Stage. 

Wealthy trawlerman, Jack Lear, is preparing to retire and hand over his hard-earned fleet to his feisty trio of daughters. Morgana, Freda and Victoria, who gut fish and work on deck wearing oilskin frocks and thigh high boots, have never seen eye to eye with each other or their tight-fisted father.

As the sisters scheme and scrap over their inheritance, enter Edmund, the womanising lawyer. Family ties are tested as each woman strives for freedom, fortune and love in this rivalry stormier than the dark North Sea.
