Clever, Thought-provoking, Must see

See it if You love King Lear. Or you want to see how timely King Lear can be.

Don't see it if You want traditional Shakespeare that doesn't ask tough questions.

We have the freedom to choose the one we find most convincing...It's Bruun-Moss's ingenious direction that delivers the final, shattering blow of the piece - a moment I found genuinely terrifying in all the right ways."
