An aging king resolves to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, with repercussions he little expects. With his very life hanging by a thread, Lear loses everything that defined him as a monarch and reveals the core of his own humanity as he descends into madness.

Starring Calgary’s own Stephen Hair and directed by Canadian theatre legend Seana McKenna, join The Shakespeare Company for its production of King Lear.

King Lear runs March 15 to 31, 2018 at The Studio at Vertigo Theatre (161, 115 9th Ave. SE).
