Summary

Acclaimed classical actor and two-time TONY Award nominee Edward Petherbridge was cast as King Lear, when on the second day of rehearsals he suffered a stroke that left him barely able to move. As he struggled to recover Edward made a discovery: the entire role of Lear still existed word for word in his mind.

From being on the brink of playing one of Shakespeare's most revered roles, to lying in a hospital bed surrounded by doctors, Edward never imagined what tragedies and comedies lay in store for him.

My Perfect Mind celebrates the resilience of the human spirit through the prism of Shakespeare's great tragedy, however, it's anything but a tragedy.
