Archives - King Lear

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Hugh Croydon

Wednesday 1st – Saturday 11th May 1974 in the Auditorium

One of the world’s most famous plays. The unforgettable story of two old men who in their crass stupidity have to be taught how to love, and who have to pay for their stupidity with such titanic suffering. The story of two sons and three daughters and of their tragic fathers; of indescribable evil and of unbelievable good; of physical cruelty and lust and of spiritual self-sacrifice.
