King Lear (Chichester)

King Lear (Chichester)

Synopsis

'How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child!'
 
Two ageing fathers - one a King, one his courtier - reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery - and their worlds crumble.
 
Tender, violent, moving and shocking, King Lear is considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written. This will be an explosive, charged and contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s epic masterpiece in the intimate setting of the Minerva Theatre.
 
There is a possibility that the captioning for this performance will be provided on a handheld tablet – please ask Box Office for further details.
