National Theatre Live: King Lear

June 10, 12:00 PM3:50 PM

$13.50 – $16

"Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production." (Daily Telegraph)

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.

Jonathan Munby directs this "nuanced and powerful" (The Times) contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Admission: $16 adults, $13.75 member, $14.50 students + seniors, $13.50 children. Eligible for the Youth Arts Access Fund.
