King Lear sees two ageing fathers misjudge the loyalty of their children, forcing them to realise their false values and confront their own humanity.
"Krape's strong performance as a person of power was not bound to gender, but to her skill and experience as an actor."
King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one King, one courtier – misjudge the loyalty of their children, catapulting them both into a violent power struggle that forces them to realise their false values and confront their own humanity.
Melbourne Shakespeare Company’s moving contemporary adaptation of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy – King Lear is a tender, violent, and intimate exploration of old age portrayed in all its vulnerability, pride, folly and wisdom.
