King Lear

August 4 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until 5th August 2022


This summer, Cornwall’s Miracle Theatre presents Shakespeare’s most elemental and passionate play.

King Lear is an exquisitely dark tale about a family squabble that grows out of all proportion, blowing up into a storm of deadly force.

This fresh and fast-paced adaptation of Shakespeare’s text – pared down to its bare essentials – tells a shocking, yet tender, story of ageing and madness, fuelled by ambition and fired by betrayal.

Shakespeare loved to weave theatrical magic out of tragedy in a way that is never far from farce, making King Lear ripe for Miracle’s unique treatment!

Freely adapted and directed by Bill Scott

Recommended age 12+
