CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.

King Lear archiveKing 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 Joseph Marcell (King Lear), Rawiri Paratene (Gloucester), Oliver Boot (Edmund/King of France), Bethan Cullinane (Cordelia/Fool), Ruth Everett (Goneril/Curan), Shanaya Rafaat (Regan), Matthew Romain (Edgar/Duke of Cornwall), Dickon Tyrrell (Earl of Kent).
Author Shakespeare. Producer The Globe Theatre. Director Bill Buckhurst. Design Jonathan Fensom. Music Alex Silverman.
