According to MetaFilter, there's a bunch of theories floating around about Cordelia and The Fool in Lear, including that they could've been played by the same actor, are doubles for each other, and that The Fool really is Cordelia in disguise.
Has anyone out there seen a production of Lear where they made this choice? Where Cordelia disguised herself as The Fool? If so, what was it like? Did it work?
