Shakespeare’s epic tragedy

For the first time in more than 20 years the Guthrie will stage Shakespeare’s searing masterpiece. After years of ruling Britain in peace, a respected King Lear decides to relinquish his crown and divide his kingdom among his three daughters. But when their love and loyalty falter, so does Lear’s sanity. King Lear is a gripping portrait of fathers, daughters and a once-mighty ruler thwarted by his own hubris and betrayed by a vanishing mind.
King Lear showcases the Twin Cities’ greatest talent, including Guthrie Theater veterans Nathaniel Fuller and Stephen Yoakam alternating performances in the title role.
