A mighty leader retires, disowns his favorite daughter, and banishes his closest advisor and confidante. From the moment Lear appears, we know we will witness his unraveling. A dominion teeters in the balance as a once-powerful tycoon becomes increasingly out of touch with reality. Who will seize control? Are his children conspiring to ruin Lear, or just trying to cope with the new landscape of their lives? Can Lear trust his perceptions? Can we?
Lean & Hungry Theater, known for its professional audio theater, removes its signature foley table and microphone stands to create a fully staged production of Shakespeare's epic tragedy KING LEAR.
