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.
