The Festival is proud to present a staged reading of Shakespeare’s moving tragedy King Lear. As he reckons with aging, King Lear divides his kingdom between his three daughters. But something nasty is brewing just below the surface, and everyone’s life is changed in an instant. Poetic, heartbreaking, and relevant – this play is a tried and true masterpiece. Produced by Michael A. Newcomer and Elizabeth Elkins Newcomer. Pay-what-you-will at the door.
