King Lear, by William Shakespeare
Directed by Paul Mullins
A play that explores how the craving for power can shatter both kingdoms and families, King Lear paints a chilling picture of the plight of humanity in an indifferent universe and charts a monarch’s disturbing descent into madness. Featuring some of the most powerful and harrowing verse that Shakespeare wrote at the height of his powers, this powerful tale will star former Shakespeare Santa Cruz Artistic Director and Royal Shakespeare Company actor Paul Whitworth in a not-to-be-missed tour-de-force performance.
