The Lear Project at the Guild

What Is It?

An opportunity to explore Shakespeare with a group of committed thespians ready to delve deeply into the text and all that entails! Participants will be asked to read the script of King Lear and prepare a monologue in preparation (memorization not required).

Actors will be led by Robert Winslow using Alexander and Linklater techniques. The group will explore the origins of the text with an experienced Shakespearean specialist from Trent, a two day intensive voice workshop with Toronto vocal teacher Heather Dick, other guest speakers yet to be announced. All of this will lead to a public reading of the play in May.
