Selling King Lear…

Every year I hear a wide range of opinions on both Shakespeare and whatever play is the subject of Dartmouth Shakespeare week. A lot of folks seem to think Shakespeare too high brow, or just not approachable So, selling the idea (and making new converts) is always part of the focus. The year, in addition to the usual awareness raising, The Inn Theatre Company staged two “stunts” to further promote the concept. Even the very youngest were pressed into service.
