King Lear has ruled for many years. As age overtakes him, he divides his kingdom amongst his children. Misjudging their loyalty, he finds himself stripped of the trappings of state, wealth and power that had defined him.
Gregory Dorans critically-acclaimed production returns to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre for three weeks only, with Antony Sher reprising his role as King Lear. Book tickets
