About this event


Chichester Festival Theatre's production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season.


Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare's tender, violent, moving and shocking play.


Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees 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 bitter ends.
