    ‘Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’

    Daily Telegraph

     

    See Ian McKellen’s "extraordinarily moving portrayal" (Independent) of King Lear.

    Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season.

    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. Family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

     

    Please note that King Lear will contain strobe lighting.
