Subject: 13.1535 Lear's Map
Comment:        RE: SHK 13.1535 Lear's Map

Dear Colleagues:

 Several years ago I saw a production in London (I think in 1996) which
used a huge paper map that was strewn across the stage in 1.1. The paper
map, itself symbolic, was left on the stage for the whole production, so
that characters simply walked all over it during the performance.  As
the kingdom deteriorated, so did the map. The paper map was an
intriguing and frightening symbolic representation of the fragility of
power and of sanity.  Really well done. Sorry my memory isn't better on
the year. Perhaps some colleagues can help with this production.

Regards,
Michael
