Probably the main thing I enjoyed about this play was the Fool. It (the Fool is purposefully androgynous) is an interesting character because of how Feinstein and WTG build on the Fool's metadramatic performances in King Lear. Here the Fool behaves somewhat like a narrator, but is also continuously at play, in multiple senses of the word. It plays games—word games, for instance—it plays roles—Lear and the Queen—and it plays its role as Fool.

I'm not sure how I feel about making Goneril and Reagan into victims of Lear's patriarchal oppression and implied child molestation. I think I see why WTG wanted to go that route, but I'm simply not sure I like it. I find it difficult to see Lear as an incestuous child molester, though I must also admit that the Lear of Lear's Daughters is a very different figure than he is in Shakespeare.
