WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

King Lear is Shakespeare at his most profound, an ancient tale of a king and his three daughters, which has become the most powerful drama in Western literature. Both an intimate family drama and explosive political commentary, Lear explores with stark violence and devastating wit the most basic questions of human existence: destiny, love and duty, friendship and betrayal, leadership and loyalty, and the overwhelming inevitability of a life nearing its end. Stacy Keach returns to the Goodman in the title role. Robert Falls directs. No Performances Friday, October 6th Sunday, October 8th at 7:30 P.M. (Matinee still on)
