NT LIVE: KING LEAR

SUMMARY

LIVE THEATRE ON THE BIG SCREEN!
Thu, Jan 13 at 6:30 pm; Sat, Jan 15 at 1:30 pm

Captured live from London’s West End in 2018, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.
