 Summer Festival KING LEAR 

"Come not between the dragon and his wrath." - King Lear

King Lear
directed by Sabin Epstein
by William Shakespeare
in repertory July 8 - August 7


A father puts the affections of his three daughters to the test when he chooses to divide his kingdom amongst them, promising the largest piece to the one who "doth love us most."  The tragic consequences of his arrogance take their toll, and King Lear finds himself stripped of his grandeur and all that truly matters.  Part intimate family drama, part epic journey of the human condition, King Lear is celebrated as one of the greatest works of Western literature.
