Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this
triumphant production captured live from
London’s West End.
Chichester Festival Theatre’s production
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 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.
