Eleusis Collective’s production of William Shakespeare’s King Lear is a site-specific and promenade production where audience and actors travel together through a rural Iowa farm just after the 1980s farming crisis. Installed in an industrial Chicago farm and fueled by an original singer-songwriter score, this political rendering of Lear looks at the play through the eyes of the daughters and asks: how can we free ourselves of our societal coding and simply connect?

The show will begin at 7pm Read/Write Library at 914 N. California and is also in partnership with Patchwork Farms.
