Sydney Theatre Company presents
King Lear

24 Nov 2015 to 9 Jan 2016

Sydney Theatre Company and
Colonial First State Global Asset Management present
KING LEAR
by William Shakespeare

A tyrant. A father. Every inch a king.

Lear decides to divide his kingdom between his three daughters. To determine their share, they need simply to express their love for him. The youngest, Cordelia, says nothing. Everything else is history.

Shakespeare’s masterpiece is a portrait of a man in decline. Yet, as his mind falters, he ekes out new wisdom. As people betray him, he discovers true constancy. At his nadir, he is at his best.

Geoffrey Rush and Neil Armfield have been friends and collaborators for well over 30 years – one of Australia’s most enduring and revered creative partnerships. Together, they have worked on everything from Hamlet to The Diary of a Madman, upping the ante for Australian theatre again and again. Now, in a landmark production, this iconic actor and this visionary director bring us a King Lear like no other.
