King Lear

Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre - Auditorium

National Theatre (LIVE) Ian McKellen stars in this Chichester Festival Theatre production. 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. ★★★★★ “Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.” Daily Telegraph “extraordinarily moving portrayal” Independent
