"Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production." - Dominic Cavendish, Telegraph

"Intensely moving… a modern-dress staging that is both urgent and driven." - Mark Shenton, The Stage

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, KING LEAR sees two aging 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 power struggle with bitter ends in this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare's tender, violent, moving and shocking play.
