The Tragedy of King Lear (2023)
Playwright: William Shakespeare
Director: James Wallis
The Theatre Centre – BMO Incubator Space
February 16th, 2023 – February 26th, 2023
This mythic tale brings us into the heart of a broken kingdom, surrounded by an apocalyptic storm, resulting in a complex narrative of loyalty, love, and violence.
Using only the Folio text, something rarely done in performance, this bold, bare bones production will invite the audience to see and hear a multifaceted play, both recognizable and estranged, that is part historical fiction, part epic tragedy, and part devastating look at the foreboding “promis’d end” of our cruel world.
