“Thou shouldst not have been old, till thou hadst been wise.”
Starring Joe Inscoe in the title role, this epic, heartrending drama is renowned as one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies. Lear, the aging king of Britain, intends to divide his kingdom among his daughters and live out his remaining years untroubled. However, his attempt to force his daughters’ public declarations of love goes disastrously awry, leading to the devastation of his kingdom, his family, and himself. In this fractured world, loyalty crumbles, sanity is fleeting, and no one can be trusted.
