King Lear against the Guidelines/Luxuriant

Dir.Simon Vincenzi/Toynbee Studios/People 's Palace/2011-13


Continuing to explore themes of possession, a strand that links all four works in the series, both Luxuriant and King Real Against the Guidelines also involve overlapping casts.

In Luxuriant, the fictional band of players Troupe Mabuse, a theatre company under the control of psychic shape-shifter and master of disguise Dr. Mabuse, make a desperate and absurd attempt to reconstruct the classical musical film Gold Diggers, in the recently refurbished People’s Palace theatre.
