FILMING POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Filmed live on stage at the Stratford Festival in Ontario, Canada as part of the Stratford Festival HD Series.
An aging monarch resolves to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, with consequences he little expects. His reason shattered in the storm of violent emotion that ensues, with his very life hanging in the balance, Lear loses everything that has defined him as a king – and thereby discovers the essence of his own humanity. Four hundred years after it was written, King Lear resonates as never before. Starring the incomparable Colm Feore in the role of a lifetime.
