NT LIVE SCREENING: KING LEAR

March 12 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

King Lear By William Shakespeare

Captured live from London’s West End in 2018, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.

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.

Jonathan Munby directs this ‘nuanced and powerful’ (The Times) contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

 

★★★★★ ‘Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’ – Daily Telegraph

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

★★★★★ ‘Ian McKellen’s detailed, intelligent performance is a triumph.’ – Evening Standard
