King Lear

King Lear

London
Tragedy
Production Placeholder
SYNOPSIS: King Lear tells the story of a monarch as blind to his children's true natures as he is to his subjects' needs. He divides his kingdom between his two elder daughters — only to be discarded to a world verging on chaos. Battling the elements from within and without, Lear journeys to the brink of madness.

King Lear’s tempestuous poetry is shot through with touches of humour and moments of heart-rending simplicity, as the notion of familial love is questioned and torn apart.
