Arden Shakespeare Series: King Lear

Author(s): William Shakespeare


Jonathan Munby's explosive revival of Shakespeare's epic tragedy transferred to the West End following its sold-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre, performed by a celebrated cast led by Ian McKellen as the embittered monarch in a fractured kingdom. This version of the text was edited and curated specially for the production.

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 shocking ends.

Tender, brutal, moving and epic,King Lear is considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written.
