Lear's Follies 

When: Wednesdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Aug. 5 2012
Price: $18-30
Family homes lost to bad mortgages, the elderly left penniless, and a tanking economy: 2012 has plenty in common with 1929. Taking advantage of our present moment, playwright C.S. Whitcomb has chosen the Great Depression as the setting for Lear's Follies, her adaptation of King Lear commissioned as half of Portland Shakespeare Project's Season of Lear. Despite some problems, Lear's Follies is no off-season consolation; it has plenty to offer an audience eager for more substantial fare. DYLAN MECONIS
