I presented my production history research to the King Lear class, including cast and crew, in late January of 2013. I provided a comprehensive history of how the text and play have evolved since the 17th century, but chose to focus on visuals rather than facts. I provided information as necessary, but encouraged questions and comments about the images I provided: what does this depiction of the play say to you? How do design and staging choices affect the meaning of the play?
