Product Details

When England's aging King Lear renounces his throne to divide his kingdom among his three daughters, treachery, madness and murder soon follow. After banishing Cordelia, his most loyal daughter, Lear is betrayed and cast out by her elder sisters Regan and Goneril. Meanwhile, evil brews at the Gloucester castle as Edgar falls victim to his brother's deception. As battle lines are drawn and backs are stabbed, Lear rages against a fearsome storm. Can a man undo his wrongs? Will Cordelia be saved? Or will the wheels of fate crush all in its way? Produced by Britain's distinguished Thames Television, this compelling production of Shakespeare's KING LEAR stars Patrick Magee (A Clockwork Orange), Ronald Radd (The Iceman Cometh), Patrick Mower (Emmerdale), and many other mainstays of stage and television.
