King Lear, poet W H Auden declared, is an unstageable drama: “the one play of Shakespeare that, in the storm scene, really requires the movies”. Yet the art of staging does not simply concern the challenge of presenting things described but not seen; it also involves detecting the spaces between the words, locating concepts, events, and even characters that the text merely hints at.
