Driven by love, jealousy and betrayal, Lear is forced into a savage world of chaos and ruin by the very people closest to the Monarchs' heart - her Daughters. In a world turned upside down Lear is thrust into isolation and must fight to cling on to her own identity, throne and kingdom. Phil Willmott's vibrant new production of Shakespeare's masterpiece, KING LEAR, puts a mother at the heart of the action supposing that it is a queen who, weary of public office, divides the kingdom amongst her daughters. But the old woman finds it impossible to retire gracefully and as her mental faculties begin to fail she's cast out by her eldest children, as their sister prepares to lead a French invasion in retaliation. Meanwhile the Duke of Gloucester's equally ruthless son plots to steal his brothers inheritance and the younger generations align in a savage plot to mercilessly destroy their parents. But will they succeed? An epic double family drama about mothers and daughters, fathers and sons.Performers Ursula Mohan (Queen), Richard Derrington, Felicity Duncan, Stephen Harakis, Claire Jeater, Rikki Lawton, Riley Madincea, Tom Mccarron, Ursula Mohan, Alexander Morelli, Simon Purse, John Rayment, Joseph Taylor, Daisy Ward..
