With this return to deep focus, the pan resolves into a cinematic reveal and cover: we catch a glimpse of the flowing water and a canal boat moving inexorably towards us “like fate itself ” (Abel 1984: 331), only to have that movement obscured by the arrivals. The pan makes as strong a meta-cinematic claim, in other words, as the moments in later screen Lears that seem to echo it: when Lear falls out of the frame in Peter Brook’s film (1971), and when the character doubling Lear and Gloucester in Kristian Levring’s adaptation (2000) stumbles out of a similarly unforgiving landscape.
Wilson probably intended the term “absurd” to be merely dismissive, but it is ironically prescient: the absurdity is that of a silent stage that he envisages as a void, a space of speculation or of awkward, embarrassing absence—or failure—of words and actions. Wilson could hardly have anticipated that an important strand within the theatre of the decade that followed would actively embrace the condition of absurdity both philosophically and formally; nor that, in this theatre, the spaces between verbal utterances would often be understood to communicate as powerfully as (often more powerfully than) the words themselves; still less that this sensibility would subsequently inform the performance of Shakespeare as well.
Subtext”, in this account, is an effect of technique, the converse of Stanislavsky’s view of it. The approach pioneered by Hall (supported by the verse work of his co-director, John Barton) suggested that Pinteresque poetics offered a means of reconciling the formal imperatives of Shakespeare’s text with a notion of subtext that was feasible and workable because it was so precisely scored. TAKING THE PISS Reflecting on his direction of the RSC premiere of The Homecoming, Hall recalled “the base of a good deal of Harold’s work is the cockney game of taking the piss: and part of that game is that you should not be quite sure whether the piss is being taken or not” (Itzin and Trussler 2005: 137).
