“King Lear” by William Shakespeare

Arguably William Shakespeare’s most famous and harsh tragedy, the story of King Lear follows the king as he slowly delves into madness, accelerated by the cruelty of two of his daughters, Goneril and Regan. Beginning with a banishment and ending with a war, and with a tempest in the middle, this epic could only be played in five parts, each released as a separate video on our YouTube Channel.

This show was released throughout a week in July, 2020.
