NT Live - King Lear

NT Live - King Lear


Broadcast live from London’s West End, this new production stars Ian McKellen in an ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear. Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a king, the other 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.
