Searching For Lear was an extraordinary project of the Debney Park Secondary College after school program. They play combined Shakespeare's King Lear with a youth-devised street story with a running commentary by characters based on Estragon and Vladimir from Beckett's Waiting For Godot. This heady mix created a complex and demanding work that was realised using designer Glenn Romanis' extraordinary Rubik's Cube-style set. The play was performed in Flemington to a huge and enthusiastic audience from the flats. Their pride at what the young people of their community could achieve was manifest. This project lived on in a paper presentation and workshop at the Drama Australia Conference and the script that was taken up and performed by a similar culturally diverse group based in Newcastle UK.
