With its tempestuous poetry, touches of humor and moments of heart-rending simplicity, Shakespeare’s ultimately tragic King Lear is one of the deepest artistic explorations of the human condition. 

This riveting evening is performed by one of England’s premier theatre companies on a traveling Elizabethan stage.

Special note: Joseph Marcell will play King Lear. He is best known for his role as Geoffrey in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and has previously performed at the Globe in Much Ado About Nothing (2011) and Coriolanus (2006).

Pre-show lecture scheduled

“The Globe does something else to a play: it makes it a communal, shared experience and when a show fires up as this does, there’s nowhere better to be.” — Sunday Express
