See Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear.
Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing
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. Captured live from London’s
West End in 2018, Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s
tender, violent, moving and shocking play.
