    Sunday October 14th, 3:00pm at NST City

    By William Shakespeare

    This is an Encore screening


    ‘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.
