Who wants to guess what role DS2 is playing in his schools interpretation of King Lear

I won't drag this out but do guess because it's taken me a week to get it confirmed and I can't wait...


NigellasDealer Mon 16-Jun-14 20:22:09

Goneril or Regan?

MaryBennett Mon 16-Jun-14 20:22:39

Not Lear????

NigellasDealer Mon 16-Jun-14 20:23:34

Cordelia? (sorry love a thread where I can show off that i rally did read shakespeare once upon a time)

meditrina Mon 16-Jun-14 20:24:32

The skull?

curiousgeorgie Mon 16-Jun-14 20:24:43

A one eyed witch??

TiggyD Mon 16-Jun-14 20:25:20

A ninja penguin?

Marcipex Mon 16-Jun-14 20:25:35

The dog?

LeBearPolar Mon 16-Jun-14 20:26:12

The Fool? grin

LauraChant Mon 16-Jun-14 20:26:13

When you say interpretation, is it something unexpected and not in the original, like a woodpecker, or Darth Vader?

StormCloudsGathering Mon 16-Jun-14 20:26:26

The fool? Or one of the daughters?

Pagwatch Mon 16-Jun-14 20:27:03

He's playing Iron Man


How awesome is that. I think Lear will be massively improved. Apparently he has lines and people cheer him.

Not so happy waiting for the 'costume needed' note

(I win, I'm sure of it!)

either that or he's the personification of the map of England that Lear divides up between his daughters.

StormCloudsGathering Mon 16-Jun-14 20:27:55

Or the storm? Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks etc?

Marlinspike Mon 16-Jun-14 20:28:48

Cross post....err..Iron Man is....good.

I remember his whole "blow winds, blow, crack your iron girders..."

Pagwatch Mon 16-Jun-14 20:28:50

When he first told us I though it was confusion arising from his misunderstanding (SN)

But no. The boys have all opted for including Iron Man.

It's so exciting.

babybarrister Mon 16-Jun-14 20:28:53

Ironman! wtf - is he the star role? A modern day superhero king Lear?

LauraChant Mon 16-Jun-14 20:29:34

I think I was pretty close with Darth Vader grin

Pagwatch Mon 16-Jun-14 20:30:00

I'm trying to figure where Iron man might make an appearance but I'm confident it will work

<looks confident>>

Pagwatch Mon 16-Jun-14 20:31:29

I'm going to suggest ninja penguin and darth vadar for any potential re writes.

He said one of the boys is playing Cheryl Cole. I'm less sure that that is true but, again, adventurous.

Marcipex Mon 16-Jun-14 20:31:40

Obviously Iron Man is pivotal to the plot smile

TiggyD Mon 16-Jun-14 20:34:48

Spiderman, Spiderman. Wherefore art thou Spiderman?

Alas poor Davros, I knew him well.

We saw a schools comedy Macbrth last year. No superheroes though.
