King Lear

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Sheila Daniels

April 24, 2014–May 17, 2014

Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center

The ultimate family drama matched by intense political intrigue, King Lear traces an aging monarch’s descent into madness. Weary of his royal duties, King Lear elects to distribute his lands among his three daughters. But sweet falsities and hubris blind Lear to the true motives of those around him, scorching king and kingdom to ashes with consequences that unearth the worst and best in human nature.
