Audio Description: King Lear

This is the audio described version of King Lear.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, Ian McKellen is King Lear in Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier –reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Johnathan Munby directs this ‘nuanced and powerful’ (The Times) contemporary retelling.

A production from Chichester Festival Theatre.

Available at least until 7 September 2023.
