Geoff Hoyle walks in ‘Lear’s Shadow’ at the Marsh A master clown takes on the Bard and a fool has his say about one of the great tragedies as Geoff Hoyle presents his one-man reworking of Shakespeare’s “King Lear.” “While the Fool is not exactly a bit player in ‘King Lear,’ his tangential relationship to the action and temperamental detachment makes him a prime candidate for refracting the play through his own caustic comic prism,” wrote Steve Winn in The Chronicle. Hoyle embroiders Lear’s actual speeches into his text and onstage takes on the characters of the Fool, Lear, and Lear’s daughters Goneril, Regan and Cordelia. David Ford, who developed the play with Hoyle, directs this Marsh production.
