Exclusive PAN PAN Trailer - September 5th, 2012
Promotional video for the PAN PAN production- Everyone is King Lear in his own Home
Pan Pan returns to Shakespeare for Dublin Theatre Festival 28 Sept - 7 Oct 2012 with EVERYONE IS KING LEAR IN HIS OWN HOME. Following on the enormous success of The Rehearsal: Playing The Dane in the Dublin Theatre Festival, 2010, EVERYONE IS KING LEAR IN HIS OWN HOME is a re-imagining of another great Shakespeare play. A theatrical encounter as compelling as Shakespeare's original, EVERYONE IS KING LEAR IN HIS OWN HOME is a parable – or, perhaps more properly, a cautionary tale – about how unreliable memory can be.
All aspects of the production - from founder and joint Artistic Director Gavin Quinn and co-founder and designer Aedín Cosgrove, through to the choices of music, and on to the costuming - are drawn from this real experience of a particular person's home, creating a world in which the mundane acts - like hoovering - have mythic implications.
