Broadcast live from London’s West End, Chichester Festival Theatre’s production of King Lear featured Ian McKellen in the starring role. It is a contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving, and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two aging 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.
