About this show

Sir Derek Jacobi is King Lear. An aging monarch. A kingdom divided. A child's love rejected. Lear's world descends into chaos, and all that he once believed is now threatened. Unrivaled theatrical partners, Tony and Olivier Award winners Jacobi and Michael Grandage (The Tempest, Don Carlos, and Twelfth Night) bring the drama's grand themes to vivid life in a production that unites one of the great actors of our time and one of England's most revered directors.
