A stone conjuror's crown against a moody, dramatic sky.

Director Emily Raymond

Depicting a once great ruler’s descent into madness, Queen Lear is one of the most powerful tragedies ever written.

Queen Lear is a powerful old monarch, who wants to divide her kingdom between her three daughters and live in carefree, sumptuous retirement.

When this plan goes catastrophically wrong, the Queen, the court and the whole state plunge into freefall towards brutal, fractured oblivion.

Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy is a timeless story of pride, cruelty, power, love and absurdity that holds the mirror up to nature and examines the human condition in all its frailty.
