About King Lear - Stratford-upon-Avon

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.

The Story

A proud man, he allows vanity to cloud his judgement, believing that he can relinquish the crown, but enjoy the same authority and respect he has always known. Misjudging his children’s loyalty he soon finds himself stripped of all the trappings of state, wealth and power he had taken for granted throughout his life. Alone in the wilderness he is left to confront the mistakes of a life that has brought him to this point.

History of King Lear - Stratford-upon-Avon

Following his performance as Willy Loman in Arthur Miller’s great 20th century American tragedy Death of a Salesman, Antony Sher returns to play King Lear, one of the greatest parts written by Shakespeare. The production is directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran. Don't miss out on your chance to see the incredible King Lear at the iconic Royal Shakespeare Theatre this year.
