King Lear

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Hugh Croydon
1st – 11th May 1974

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.

Part of the Barn’s 1973-1974 Season.
