Rehearsals for Edward’s two-man King Lear project, My Perfect Mind, begin in December and the show will open in London next spring, preceded by a six-week tour.

Joining Edward will be Paul Hunter, his clown companion from The Fantasticks (Duchess Theatre, 2010). Kathryn Hunter will direct, and the show is designed by Michael Vale. My Perfect Mind is co-produced by Told by an Idiot, the Young Vic and the Drum Theatre Plymouth.

The touring and London dates are as follows:

14 February  – 2 March, 2013: Drum Theatre Plymouth

5 – 9 March, 2013: unitytheatre, Liverpool

19 – 23 March, 2013: Salisbury Playhouse, Salisbury

3 – 20 April, 2013: Young Vic, London (The Maria)

Booking for the London run is now open to Friends of the Young Vic. Public booking will be available from 10 a.m. on Thursday, 25 October.

Don’t miss this unique, richly comic and profoundly moving exploration of Shakespeare’s Lear, into which is intimately woven Edward’s own remarkable journey.
