NT LIVE: King Lear

Thu, 27th September, 2018 @ 19:00pm - 22:00pm

£7 – £11

For King Lear

Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.

★★★★★”Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production”Daily Telegraph

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.

★★★★★”Nuanced and powerful”The Times

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 adds to the roster of his greatest achievements with this extraordinarily moving portrayal of King Lear”. Independent

★★★★★”Intensely moving” The Stage

★★★★★”Smart, lucid, superbly detailed”Guardian
