Lear’s daughter in a man’s world.
Set seven years before King Lear, Queen Goneril finds Lear's three daughters trying to find their voices while fighting a patriarchal system at odds with their aspirations. In Goneril we find a natural born leader. In Regan a boundary pusher, and in Cordelia a reluctant peacekeeper. How can they find their voices when no one is listening? Queen Goneril brings the background into focus, and a previously deafening silence to an irresistible crescendo.
This production is running in repertory with King Lear.
