King Lear

 

“Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.” (Daily Telegraph)

The Chichester Festival Theatre’s production of King Lear received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season. Jonathan Munby directs this “nuanced and powerful” (The Times) contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving, and shocking play.

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.
