Company co-founder Kristin Linklater, a theater professor at Boston's Emerson College who runs the company along with author and Harvard professor Carol Gilligan, will play Lear. 12-year-old girl will play the wise Fool. The production is directed by Maureen Shea, who is Emerson's theater director.

The show is Monday and Tuesday at 7: 30 p.m. in Kraushaar Auditorium at Goucher. Tickets are $20. Reservations are encouraged. Call (410) 337-6311.
