King Lear

by William Shakespeare

MARCH 2 & 5, National Theatre Live

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two aging fathers—one a King, one his courtier—reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.


Broadcast live and recorded in 2018 by National Theatre Live from London’s West End featuring Ian McKellan and directed by Jonathan Munby.
