KING LEAR

Confronting the role of the monarch in the balance between authority and chaos, King Lear reveals the beauty of selfless love, the heartache of betrayal, and the descent of civilization into brutishness when selfish greed has run amuck.

A long-serving monarch prepares to divide his kingdom between his three daughters with one caveat: each must proclaim her love for him in glowing terms. His plan unravels when his youngest daughter refuses to do so, creating disorder and pitting allies against one another in a civil war that threatens to consume the entire nation. His power now lost, he wanders the land seeking truth amidst the turmoil, his mind crippled with the consequences of his actions and slipping ever further into madness.
