King Lear

Fri-Sat 8pm

Sun 2pm

In a richly imagined take on Shakespeare’s classic tale, King Lear explores the concept of free will versus determinism through an expressionistic dream world. After disowning one of his three daughters and dividing his kingdom between the other two, King Lear sees his world unravel as those he trusted betray him at every turn. With an original text adaptation by Shakespearean scholar David Hartwig, a cast of 11 actors play all the characters in this ensemble-driven production.
