Nearing the end of his life, King Lear looks to divide his kingdom between his three daughters. Unfortunately, as power changes hands a vacuum is created, and destruction begins to reign supreme as everyone tries to grab power for themselves. This post-colonial adaptation of Lear examines the ways division maintains power, the systemic suppression of others, and the ways we can find a brighter future by coming together.
Note: King Lear is being sold without reserve seating. All tickets will be issued General Admission. Audiences will be sat in a non-traditional but fully accessible manner.
