King Lear [2013]

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Vladimir Shcherban
Translated by: Yurka Hauruk
Adapted by: Nicolai Khalezin

Part of Globe to Globe 2013.

Banned in their own country and driven underground, Belarus Free Theatre return to the Globe following a triumphant run at the Young Vic with their production of Trash Cuisine.

Belarus Free Theatre's King Lear, Shakespeare's great play about speaking the truth, proved one of the highlights at 2012's Globe to Globe Festival. Terrifying, provocative and charming, this is King Lear as you have never seen it before.

Performed in Belarusian.
