Auditions for King Lear

Presented by arrow_forward_ios Theatre in the Round Players

by William Shakespeare

Directed by George Roesler

DESCRIPTION: 

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.
