NT Live: King Lear

NT Live: King Lear

Broadcast live from London's West End, see Ian McKellen's extraordinarily moving portrayal 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. Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare's tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

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.
