Royal Shakespeare Company Young People's Shakespeare King Lear by William Shakespeare

Event: Royal Shakespeare Company Young People's Shakespeare King Lear by William Shakespeare
Edited and Directed by Tim Crouch

A royal family gathers for Christmas. The father broadcasts his seasonal message: he's giving up work and dividing his kingdom. With this misjudged act the natural order is upturned and the scene is set for a story of family break-up, homelessness and heartbreak.

In this new edited version, King Lear is brought vibrantly to life for schools, families and younger audiences. Stripped down to 75 minutes, the production is a thrilling and accessible introduction to one of the greatest plays ever written. Each public performance is followed by a 20 minute question and answer session with the actors.

This event is possible as a result of the ongoing collaboration between The Ohio State University and the Royal Shakespeare Company.
