Presented by arrow_forward_ios Theatre in the Round Players

by William Shakespeare

Directed by George Roesler


Declaring “I am going to divide my kingdom,” an aging king of Britain puts his daughters to the test – how much do they love him? This irresistible beginning starts a classic story about fathers and children, property, power, and possession. Seduced by the flattery of his eldest daughters, King Lear banishes his youngest, Cordelia, and unknowingly sets in motion a plot of treachery and murder. Shakespeare’s tragedy about the fall and decay of the world, tells a tale of madness, tyranny, loyalty, and love.


Runs weekends September 13 to October 6, with a Monday Pay-What-You-Can performance on September 23.


Rehearsals begin July 29. They’ll be scheduled Sundays through Thursdays, 6:30-9:30pm. Whenever possible Actors will be scheduled on an as needed basis.
