King Lear

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The gut-wrenching devastation of Lear encompasses more than one man's trajectory through power and hubris; it is an affecting, unflinching chronicle of a family as that family disintegrates around the mental illness of its patriarch. To add a deeply personal dimension to Shakespeare's themes of madness, frailty, and love, this production is set in a memory care facility. The show invites you to experience, in the midst of tragedy, the healing and transcendent nature of great art.
