King Lear

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The aged King Lear has had a long and peaceful reign, but he has no living male heir. In dividing the kingdom among his three daughters Lear sets the stage for his own destruction, as Ancient Britain is ripped apart by its rulers.

In perhaps his darkest turn, Shakespeare’s imagination has transformed this ancient folk tale into one of the most gruesome and harrowing tragedies ever written as families divide, order descends into chaos and the state slides into war.

Starring John McEnery in the title role, this production is directed by Benjamin Blyth.
