About This Show

Perhaps the world’s greatest tragedy, Shakespeare’s King Lear tells the story of two families and a country torn apart by foolish decisions: fathers and their children abandoning love and playing for power with catastrophic consequences. Lear banishes the most loving of his three daughters, dividing his kingdom between the other two; while the Earl of Gloucester sends his most loving son into exile.The fathers’ actions are so blind, figuratively and literally, that only profound sacrifice can create the redemption craved.
