This is an original script by Stuart Delves, the author of “The Real Lady Macbeth”: FEATs winner 2006.  It tells the story of King Lear and his three daughters, with the parallel story of Gloucester and his sons, set in the year 2020 and with the ozone hanging on by a thread.  In the tradition of popular culture Lear decides to divide his kingdom on reality television.  The paths of love, betrayal, greed and power are considered, and human foolishness and the consequences of fatal flaws are exposed.
