Dysfunctional families are not a modern phenomenon... When Lear, coming towards the final years of his life, divides his kingdom, he allows himself to be flattered by his elder daughters’ empty sycophancy and, in doing so, banishes his truthful, loving youngest girl, Cordelia. A heartbreaking tale of flawed parenthood, regrets and vengeance, with deathbed reconciliation and some breathtaking swordfights, King Lear is one of The Bard’s best. We will be returning to The Crouch Gardens, Seaford, as well as The Old Priory in Lewes and, finally in the UK, Kingston village green. Our annual outdoor production will be performed in July before we tour to Norway in August. As always, we will be featuring some of our best local young (and young-at-heart) actors and we keep our fingers crossed for fine weather!
