King Lear has ruled for many years. As age overtakes him, he divides his kingdom amongst his children.
Misjudging their loyalty, he soon finds himself stripped of all the trappings of state, wealth and power that had defined him.

RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran’s critically-acclaimed production returns to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre for three weeks only, with Antony Sher reprising his role as King Lear, one of the greatest parts ever written by Shakespeare.
