AN UNABRIDGED STAGED READING
March 12 – 13, 2017
“When we are born, we cry that we are come To this great stage of fools.”
Old King Lear, weary of royal duties, proposes to break up his kingdom and divide it among his three daughters. But this rash generosity is cruelly repaid and Lear discovers too late the false values by which he has lived – and, in turn, the suffering common to all humanity.
