Synopsis : The Seagull King
Unable to financially support himself, Wallace Wood an older actor who never cracked the big time, is residing in a nursing home. The world thinks he has Alzheimer’s but Wallace is only acting; superbly. To date it is the best performance of his life. Trouble is, among the soggy party pie dinners and incontinence pads one carer also works at a theatre company who is putting on King Lear, but the company can’t find a King. Has Shakespeare found him? If so, can Wallace find the courage to leave the sanctuary of this chicken coup and through finally playing Lear become the greatest of all the dreamers . . .
