Shakespeare's infamous 'mad king' who tested his three daughters' love for him is given new life in a brand-new production directed by Nancy Meckler, whose previous works for the RSC include Anna Karenina, Heartbreak House, True West, The Birthday Party, The Bacchae and Orestes. When the ageing monarch of Britain, King Lear, decides to handover his duties to his three daughters by dividing up his kingdom amongst them. In order to do this, he decides to allocate the portions based upon each of his daughter's declarations of their love for him, with disastrous consequences.
