No Shakespearean tragedy

IT MIGHT have been Black Friday but Shakespeare's return to the Jetty Theatre was no tragedy.

The CHATS production of King Lear directed by Shirley Barnett has been hailed a success.

Dianne Babb from Bellingen was among those enthralled with the production.

"It's a story of deceit, rivalry, a story of decline into madness, into division and defeat, wonderfully portrayed by an excellent cast that gave a lively and strong performance," Ms Dabbs wrote.

King Lear continues through until Sunday, July 22. Go to jettytheatre.com.au for details.
