Following its sold-out run at the Minerva last autumn, King Lear will run for a strictly limited period at the Duke of York's Theatre from 11 July to 3 November 2018.
King Lear will be the third Festival 2017 production to transfer to London this year, following the musical Caroline, Or Change at Hampstead Theatre (12 March - 21 April) and James Graham's Quiz at the West End's Noël Coward Theatre (31 March - 16 June).
Tickets for King Lear are available now from £32 - see the tickets link below.
With its intimate staging, this contemporary, dystopian production places audiences at the centre of the storm as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with shocking ends.
