The gut-wrenching devastation of Lear encompasses more than one man's trajectory of power and hubris; it is an affecting, unflinching chronicle of a family as it disintegrates around the mental illness of its patriarch. This spring we invite you to experience, in the midst of tragedy, the healing and transcendent nature of great art.

Leigh Kennicott

An affecting study of aging and hubris, King Lear depicts a monarch at the height of his powers who decides to pre-empt fortune and dispose of his kingdom himself. Instead of security, Lear (Geoff Elliott in the role of his lifetime) soon finds himself greatly diminished, homeless and fending for himself in the elements.
