King Lear


The repetition – the confusion – the growing sense that someone is not all there….  What happens when the mind begins to deteriorate? How does dementia change a family? An empire?
A mighty leader retires, disowns his favorite daughter, and banishes his closest advisor and confidante. From the moment Learappears, we know we will witness his unraveling. A dominion teeters in the balance as a once-powerful tycoon becomes increasingly out of touch with reality. Who will seize control? Are his children conspiring to ruin Lear, or just trying to cope with the new landscape of their lives? Can Lear trust his perceptions? Can we?
