National Theatre Live
By William Shakespeare
★★★★★ ‘Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’ (Daily Telegraph)
IAN MCKELLEN HAS DADDY ISSUES
Ian McKellen takes on one of the great roles in his ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear, captured live at the West End run of the Chichester Festival Theatre’s production. ‘Nuanced and powerful’ (The Times) this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play matches one of his generation’s best Shakespearean actors with a role he was born to play.
Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two aging fathers – one a King, one his courtier – 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.
