King Lear

King Lear

Lear is retiring. He cannot stand in the way of progress.


But dividing his vast empire between his daughters comes at a cost. Now he must navigate a treacherous path leading to refuge or madness.

Yard Players present a new interpretation of an epic story of loss, growing old and new beginnings.

Set in a criminal world where family ties are stretched thin and business brings blood, we visit the stark reality of an ever divisive dog-eat-dog society.

"He’s mad that trusts in the tameness of a wolf."

This production marks the exciting debut of Yard Players, a new vibrant company, creating vivid, accessible productions of classics.

Age Recommendation: 14+
