KING LEAR

OCTOBER 26, 2020 | Fortyfivedownstairs Theatre

One of the most powerful tragedies ever staged

King Lear has been a powerful ruler for many years but as age overtakes him, he decides to divide his kingdom amongst his three daughters. Misjudging their loyalty, he soon finds himself stripped of all the trappings of state, wealth and power that had defined him and Lear’s world descends into chaos.

 

King Lear is Melbourne Shakespeare Company’s first Studio Season developed as part of our commitment to supporting emerging female directors.
