Ian McKellen adds to the roster of his greatest achievements with this extraordinarily moving portrayal of King Lear.
Independent

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, 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.

Ian McKellen’s detailed, intelligent performance is a triumph
