A family feud tears apart a kingdom in Shakespeare’s epic tragedy King Lear in the Globe Theatre in London this Summer.
When the aged King relinquishes his empire, he divides it amongst his three daughters, promising the largest share to the one who professes to love him the most.
But when the balance of power transfers to the next generation, Lear is cast out by those he trusts, embarking on a maddening quest for self-knowledge and reconciliation.
A nightmarish family drama of global proportions, King Lear forces us to face our own humanity and the profound need for compassion.
‘The oldest hath borne most: we that are young Shall never see so much, nor live so long’ (Act V, scene 3)
