A vain king seeking release from responsibility divides his realm among his daughters, but he’s soon betrayed and stripped of all that defined him. Shattered, foolish, and with his life in the balance, this great tragedy leaves Lear with nothing save his humanity.

Performed at The Playhouse at the University of Louisville, featuring Walden Theatre Conservatory students and staff alongside teachers and students from the university.
