About This Show

Asking what King Lear is about is like asking what life itself is about. Here is a masterwork by a genius, an experiment in extremity and the definitive story about parents and children. This unforgettable portrait of the thirst for absolute power tumbling a nation to the brink of disaster tells the thrilling and moving tale of a loving father searching for answers in the wilderness of his blind ego and his daughters’ betrayal.
