Synopsis

Ian McKellen stars in King Lear, which debuted at the Chichester Festival Theatre before moving to London's West End. Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of William Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play. Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear finds two aging fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Broadcast live from London’s West End on September 27, 2018. Repeat performances on October 21, October 25, and November 24, 2018.
