Directed by Kittson O’Neill

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.
