It's a mad, mad world. Once beloved, King Lear has begun his descent into insanity, dividing his kingdom between his daughters and setting off a series of tragic events. In King Lear's world, it is not only the royals who suffer, but the whole kingdom.

Shakespeare in Clark Park brings to life the classic tale of power and madness with a company of Philly's favorite actors including Brian Anthony Wilson and Charlotte Northeast with live musical scoring in partnership with Play on, Philly!

Should the weather gods determine that they want to bring us a tempest, the show will go on at the Annenberg Center, 3680 Walnut Street.


Be sure to check out our great food truck vendors each night!
