World premiere of a solo work by ‘the country’s pre-eminent experimental playwright’ (Stage). Not here, but in another place. In another place a country is at war; an old man is blinded. But not in this theatre. Here, everyone’s safe. Everything’s hilarious. The Fool leaves King Lear before the killing starts. In Truth’s a Dog Must to Kennel he enters a virtual reality and returns to the wreckage of the world he left both onstage and off. In this extraordinary new play by Tim Crouch, King Lear meets stand-up meets the metaverse.
