Stratford Festival HD: King Lear
Captured live at the legendary Stratford Festival in Canada, King Lear tells the story of a kingdom divided, a family destroyed, the faithful banished and the hateful left to wreak inhuman havoc in the realm. Four hundred years after it was written, King Lear resonates as never before.
Here’s what critics are saying:
“The plays final scenes are as harrowing as any I’ve seen.” Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
“It unquestionably catapults Colm Feore into the ranks of the world’s greatest living actors.” Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star
“Feore’s fallible, fleshly Lear is unforgettable.” J. Kelly Nestruck, The Globe and Mail
AUDIENCE ADVISORY: Best suited to ages 12 and up. One scene depicts an act of brutal violence.
