About this show

Rubicon Theatre Company presents the timely and trenchant saga King Lear as the centerpiece of their 20th anniversary season. Directed by cofounder James O'Neil, the production features a 20-member cast led by acclaimed actor and company member George Ball, who has starred in previous Rubicon productions of All My Sons, Man of La Mancha, and Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris (appearing in New York, L.A., and international companies of the latter). Timely and trenchant, King Lear is the story of a narcissistic ruler who craves adulation, casts out those who doubt his decisions, and neglects those on the fringes of society. Considered by many to be Shakespeare's greatest masterpiece, King Lear is a haunting and epic saga of love, greed, family strife, and civil war.
