SUMMARY

Directed by Andrew Hilton

John Shrapnel in the title role as King Lear

One of the pinnacles of world drama, and Shakespeare’s greatest masterpiece, King Lear is the most complete account we have of what it is – and what it is not – to be human. At a time when autocratic regimes around the world are under unprecedented threat it has also acquired a new contemporary relevance.

This play was SATTF ’s very first production twelve years ago and the company is thrilled to be bringing this new production to a much wider audience in 2012.

Admission: £18
