King Lear 
Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Bill Buckhurst
Old King Lear, weary of royal duties, proposes to break up his kingdom and divide it among his three daughters. But this rash generosity is cruelly repaid and Lear discovers too late the false values by which he has lived – and, in turn, the suffering common to all humanity.
Its tempestuous poetry shot through with touches of humour and moments of heart-rending simplicity, King Lear is one of the deepest artistic explorations of the human condition.
Performed at the Globe and touring in the UK and USA on an Elizabethan-style stage.
