KING LEAR – LIVE FROM SHAKESPEARE’S GLOBE

Theatre |
21st September 2017

Thu 21 Sep | Doors 7.30pm | £18 | Under 16s £17

King Lear (Kevin McNally) decides to divide his kingdom amongst his three daughters, but fails to anticipate the consequences of his actions. His generosity is cruelly repaid. As he comes to realize the false values by which he has lived, he finally encounters his own humanity.

King Lear’s tempestuous poetry is shot through with touches of humour and moments of heart-rending simplicity, as the notion of familial love is questioned and torn apart.

Actor Kevin McNally, best known to audiences worldwide for his role as Gibbs in The Pirates of the Caribbean film series, takes on the role of King Lear. Broadcast live to cinemas from the iconic Shakespeare’s Globe, this brand new retelling of one of the Bard’s greatest plays will capture your heart on the 21st September.
