King Lear

King Lear

The Tower Theatre performing


by William Shakespeare

Directed by Martin Mulgrew

Along with Macbeth and Hamlet, King Lear is regarded as one of Shakepeare's greatest plays. An ageing King wields power in a childlike, irresponsible fashion which has devastating consequences for his family, his kingdom and ultimately his own sanity. Cast from his throne onto heathland blasted by a storm with only his court Fool as company, Lear comes to realise too late the nature of what it is to be human and the responsibility which accompanies absolute power.

With some of his most violent scenes, Shakespeare depicts a fatal game of thrones.
