has ruled for a lifetime. He has succession plans – the Kingdom is to be shared among his three daughters. But when he is challenged, Lear's reaction unravels his family and ultimately the country, hurling him into a storm of rage, self-discovery, and perhaps even acceptance.

Is this Shakespeare's great exploration of ‘filial ingratitude'? Or the sad tale of an old man in decline and the terrible choices forced upon his daughters? Is it the story of an appallingly entitled and selfish king? Or a daughter too naïve and proud to compromise for an ailing father? It is about all these things and more.

When:
June 14 to July 20, 2024
