Summary
Trevor Nunn's acclaimed 2007 theatrical production of Shakespeare's tragedy starring Ian McKellen as the titular monarch. Proposing to divide his vast kingdom amongst his three daughters, Goneril (Frances Barber), Regan (Monica Dolan) and Cornelia (Romola Garai), Lear devises a test for his offspring to convince him of their suitability and compassion for rule. As the scheme unfolds, Goneril and Regan's true colours emerge, uncovering a vast conspiracy of greed and cruelty within the once loyal dynasty. When Lear is tricked into making a devastating error, events spiral into madness and malice, bringing the realm to its knees..
