After a critically-acclaimed, sold-out season at Chichester Festival Theatre, Jonathan Munby brings his production of King Lear to the Duke of York’s Theatre, starring theatre legend Ian McKellen. One of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, the epic tale sees two fathers cast out their dearest children in favour of greed and blind ambition. A thrilling production that reflects present-day socio-political tensions, this is a fantastic opportunity to see Ian McKellen reprise his heralded performance.

Directed by Ian Rickson, the darkly comic masterpiece sees a seemingly innocent birthday party disrupted by two enigmatic strangers, who send the celebrations spiralling into a full-blown nightmare.
