About the event

Lear, a former governor of an unnamed state, has turned over a new leaf. He has a new, younger wife, new children, and is (surprisingly) a very involved and devoted father and husband to his new family. His daughter from his first marriage, Cordelia, works as his aide, and still tries to gain her father's attention and approval. However, Lear is in the process of rebranding and rehabilitating his image, and he is desperate to distance himself from his past. Cordelia is nothing but a reminder of his past. As Cordelia struggles to understand her relationship with her father, she also must discover how to forge her own identity outside her father's long shadow.

The Studio's FIRST LOOK program is an opportunity for our audiences to participate in the development of new, imaginative theater — to interact with our playwrights, directors and actors to help us perfect a story before it is brought to the stage for a paying audience.

This series of live play readings is a standout favorite of our members and their friends from the general public. Participation is absolutely free to all who would like to join us. 

Be sure to stick around after the reading for a discussion with the playwright, director, actors and the audience. Your feedback is an important part of the play development process and will be greatly appreciated.
