ENTER QUEEN LEAR starred Jenny Runacre and was directed by Simone Vause, in the

production which ran for 3 weeks at the Drayton Arms Theatre from September 13 th to

October 2 nd 2016 .

An ageing, glamorous film star falls in love with a younger man. Now, past her cast-by- date,

she accepts to play Lear as a woman just to act again. Throughout rehearsals, she is

confronted by the men in her life – two ex-husbands, two sons and the younger lover. Her

only real constant is her relationship with her long time female dresser.

Jenny Runacre said: “I do really think it is a fascinating play, with so many levels in it. It is

not very often that an actress is given a role that has so much meat in it.”

I have adapted the play for the radio and it can be heard on the website Wirelesstheatrecompany.co.uk from Feburary 2017.
