King Lear

By William Shakespeare

Directed by George Mount

Performed in parks throughout the Puget Sound region

July 12, 2018–August 12, 2018


An aging monarch’s last act could destroy his kingdom. After ruling for many years, Lear decides to divide his lands and wealth between his daughters.  Overestimating their love and loyalty, Lear finds everything that defined him as a king ripped from his hands. Only after wandering purposeless and tossed about in a storm of pain and madness, the once mighty ruler begins to discover his own humanity.

 

No tickets needed. Seating in the parks is on a first-come, first-seated basis.

Donations after the performance will be welcomed.
