ABOUT

A wrenching story of justice, perception, and madness, King Lear has fascinated audiences for more than 400 years. The Bard’s 1605 retelling of the pre-Roman legend Leir of Britain, is a classic and well-known story of a short-sighted, proud monarch who, in seeking to avoid future strife, ultimately destroys the legacy he was hoping to preserve.
