King Lear

King Lear

Feb 23 – Apr 2, 2023
Klein Theatre

Photo of Patrick Page by Patric Shaw.

Caught in a carousel of memory, the head of a dysfunctional royal family grapples with power-hungry children and the threat of losing the empire he created. Real and imagined worlds coalesce, creating a political and personal horror that threatens to swallow the mind of the monarch. The incomparable Patrick Page (Hadestown, The Gilded Age) returns to STC as the once-revered king caught in an emotional hurricane ravaging his home, head, and heart.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Simon Godwin
