Jonathan Munby directs a modern version of the Shakespearean drama, where violence and tenderness, emotion and horror coexist. Ian McKellen is “inspiring” as Lear.
At the dawn of their lives, two fathers reject their children, even though their children really love them. Being incapable of grasping reality, they open the road to betrayal and ruthless ambitions. Families in a rabid power struggle, with a bitter end.
A recorded transmission from the stage of the Duke of York’s Theatre, from the Chichester Festival Theatre 2017, where the play was presented with tremendous success.
