RSC: King Lear
King Lear has ruled for many years. As age begins to overtake him, he decides to divide his kingdom amongst his children, living out his days without the burden of power. Misjudging his children’s loyalty and finding himself alone in the wilderness, he is left to confront the mistakes of a life that has brought him to this point.
Antony Sher returns to the RSC to play King Lear, one of the greatest parts written by Shakespeare in this, one of Shakespeare’s most epic and powerful plays.
RSC: King Lear will be broadcast live from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre on 1 December in Pathé Amsterdam and Den Haag. For more information and tickets go the Pathé website.
