King Lear

Goneril’s father near the end of his reign.

Sovereignty is a young man’s game, and it’s time for this aging monarch to fade into the background with one final demand - that his daughters profess their love for him before dividing the kingdom among them. This proves more complicated than anticipated, sending the family spiraling into madness and an unquenchable thirst for power. 

This production is running in repertory with Queen Goneril

  • Face Masks: Patrons and staff will be required to wear masks at all times. Staff will have extra masks available for anyone who needs one.
  • Reduced Contact: As much as possible, interactions between staff and patrons will be contactless. This includes ticket scanning, box office transactions, and health screenings. 
  • Physical Distancing: Patrons are encouraged to maintain a physical distance of two meters especially if they are not from the same household.
