Flaherty, Kathryn (Kate)
This essay considers the cultural work undertaken by an Australian Aboriginal adaptation of Lear. The appropriative process produces unexpected alignments and dissonances between the embedded cultural norms of the play-texts and those of its adapters. Several para-discourses, when combined with the play and production, can contribute to a thick description of its function as a cultural entity.
