Off the bat from a sell-out season in Canada this one man show slashes the story of King Lear into bawdy and sublimely entertaining tragi-comedy.

David Ladderman delivers a comic take on the classic tale of Kings, Queens and Bastards. Ladderman is a true star. Versatile, dynamic and charismatic. Battle of the Bastards is complete with sword fights, eye-gouging and Elizabethan cussing.

If you like Shakespeare you should probably go. If you don’t like Shakespeare you should definitely go.

"I never knew King Lear could be so funny." CBC Manitoba, 2013

"A polished, spellbinding performance from someone who knows how to work the crowd to perfection… refreshing brilliant fun." Nelson Mail, 2012
