The Tragedy of King Lear
Presented by Shakespeare BASH’d
Shakespeare BASH’d returns with an all-star production of The Tragedy of King Lear, by William Shakespeare, featuring Tony and Olivier nominee Scott Wentworth in the title role.
This mythic tale brings us into the heart of a broken kingdom, surrounded by an apocalyptic storm, resulting in a complex narrative of loyalty, love, and violence.
Using only the Folio text, something rarely done in performance, this bold, bare bones production will invite the audience to see and hear a multifaceted play, both recognizable and estranged, that is part historical fiction, part epic tragedy, and part devastating look at the foreboding “promis’d end” of our cruel world.
Don’t miss this intimate, exciting production, by NOW Magazine’s
“Best Site-Specific Theatre Company” (2018 & 2019).
