A comic tale of a man not doing King Lear. Acclaimed actor Edward Petherbridge was cast as King Lear, when on the second day of rehearsals he suffered a stroke that left him barely able to move. As he struggled to recover Edward made a discovery the entire role of Lear still existed word for word in his mind. From being on the brink of playing Shakespeare's most revered role, to lying in a hospital bed, Edward had never imagined what tragedies and comedies lay in store for him.
