Recorded live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas. Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season. 

Jonathan Munby directs this and shocking play. Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as familyand state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

★★★★★
‘Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’
Daily Telegraph

★★★★★
‘Ian McKellen adds to the roster of his greatest achievements with this extraordinarily moving portrayal of King Lear.’
Independent
