About the Show/Event

King Lear
Information for King Lear at Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-Upon-Avon (Play). King Lear divides his Kingdom between his daughters according to a declaration of their love for him. His eldest Goneril and Regan exaggerate their affection and inherit. His youngest daughter Cordelia speaks only the truth and is banished. So begins the tragedy of King Lear, whose dignity, sanity and finally life are torn from him by a self-seeking younger generation, ambitious for his power. What is love, what is madness, what is truth - Shakespeare explores these questions together with many others in King Lear, widely considered to be his greatest tragedy.
Performers Antony Sher (King Lear).
Author Shakespeare. Company Royal Shakespeare Company. Director Gregory Doran.
