Give Me the Map

Written by Robert Hawkes
Directed by Susan Soltis
Starring Robert Hawkes & Ray Caspio

The first scene of King Lear goes badly for the old man, as we know. But what the heck was he expecting anyway? Hawkes' one-act prologue to the tale seeks to answer that very question as the King (Robert Hawkes) and his Fool (Ray Caspio) try desperately to control events that have not even happened yet.
