Considered by many to be the greatest of Shakespeare’s tragedies, King Lear depicts two ageing parents – one a King, one his courtier – as they 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. This bold new vision of Shakespeare’s epic stars Northern Stage favorite Jamie Horton (Northern Stage’s Orwell in America at 59E59 Theaters Off-Broadway) under the direction of nationally-acclaimed Shakespeare director Stephen Brown-Fried (Northern Stage’s Macbeth).
