To have a thankless child!"

King Lear

In the magnificent setting of King’s College gardens, an ageing monarch divides a kingdom among his three daughters. In doing so his world descends into chaos and all that he once believed is brought into question. Love and duty, power and loss, good and evil are all explored in this fast-paced and dynamic production. Not to be missed!

I loved the power, inventiveness and imagination of this highly original production —The Times
