About the Show
Olivier Award-nominee Yaël Farber directs this adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy.
An aging King Lear decides it's time to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, Goneril, Regan & Cordelia. Goneril and Regan flatter their father with grand displays of love to win his affection, while Cordelia refuses to engage in her sister's deception. Upset by Cordelia's seeming lack of love, Lear disowns her and sets in motion a chain of events that leads to his downfall.
Danny Sapani ('Black Panther', 'The Crown') takes on the titular role in Olivier Award-nominee Yaël Farber's ('The Tragedy of Macbeth') retelling of Shakespeare’s subversive epic about the ill-fated monarch.
