Jack Lear 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!

Following the huge success of Richard III at Hull Truck Theatre, and fresh from directing Two Noble Kinsmen at Shakespeare's Globe, Barrie Rutter OBE directs and stars in this gritty reworking of Shakespeare's King Lear set on the River Humber, with live music by award-winning English Folk Musician Eliza Carthy MBE.
