Since late November, Ms. Nikkolos’ advisory has been working on a play called ‘King Lear,’ written by William Shakespeare. They practice daily during advisory, and sometimes during lunch, with the help of actor Steve Witting – father of BSGE’s 9th grader Olivia Witting. “’King Lear’ is a play about death,” says Sebastian Ali ‘14, who plays the title role of King Lear. “He gives his land to his three daughters, two of which only love their father for his money. The youngest daughter, Cordelia, loves her father truly but can’t show it. She’s banished from the kingdom, and dies.” The performance is later this year, and advisories will be invited to the music room to watch.
