King Lear Tickets
Following its sold-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre, Jonathan Munby’s explosive revival of Shakespeare’s epic tragedy transfers to the West End with a celebrated cast led by Ian McKellen as the embittered monarch in a fractured kingdom.
Noted for its probing observations on the nature of human suffering and kinship, it depicts the gradual descent into madness of the elderly King after he disposes of his realm giving bequests to two of his three daughters based on their flattery of him.
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.
