Melbourne Shakespeare Company’s moving contemporary adaptation of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy – King Lear is a tender, violent, and intimate exploration of old age portrayed in all its vulnerability, pride, folly and wisdom.

King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one King, one courtier – misjudge the loyalty of their children, catapulting them both into a violent power struggle that forces them to realise their false values and confront their own humanity.

praise for previous work:
‘I can say nothing else except this is completely unmissable. You will not see a better Shakespeare production for years to come’ – Planet Arts

Supported by The City of Melbourne.
