King Lear at Oregon Shakespeare Festival

More Info

Oregon Shakespeare Festival
15 S. Pioneer Street

February 21-November 3, 2013


King Lear is ready to turn his realm over to his three daughters. His plan is simple: Give the biggest piece to the daughter who loves him most. But honeyed words and hubris blind Lear to the true motives of those around him, plunging king and kingdom into a hell of treachery, madness and unspeakable acts—with consequences that reveal the worst and best in human nature. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival sets KING LEAR in the round, with Director Bill Rauch at the helm.
