DESCRIPTION:

Ian McKellen stars in this production screened live from the National Theatre

Ian McKellen stars in this Chichester Festival Theatre production which transfers to the West End for a limited season after receiving five-star reviews for its sell-out run.  Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them.  Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

★★★★★ “Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.” Daily Telegraph

“extraordinarily moving portrayal” Independent

“nuanced and powerful” The Times
