Synopsis
A veteran actor prepares to deliver a lecture on the meaning of Shakespeare's King Lear, when he is interrupted by a cell phone going off more than once in the audience. Ordering the offending audience member on stage to explain his rude behavior, the actor in effect becomes Lear as the play progresses, and the young man with the cell phone becomes Lear's Fool. By the end, the older actor has discovered as much about himself as about Lear.
