Donmar Warehouse's King Lear
On 3 February 2011, the Donmar’s Artistic Director, Michael Grandage directs Derek Jacobi as King Lear, broadcast to cinemas around the world from the Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden.
“Who is it that can tell me who I am?”
An ageing monarch. A kingdom divided. A child’s love rejected. As Lear’s world descends into chaos, all that he once believed is brought into question.
One of the greatest works in western literature, King Lear explores the very nature of human existence: love and duty, power and loss, good and evil.
