KING LEAR - 10:00 PM
Division creates a shattered and broken kingdom where darkness and betrayal corrupt truth and purpose. Heartache impedes repair. Madness is a dynamic and nihilistic force, an uncompromising storm that infects the mind and soul of a recalcitrant man. Lear attempts to fight against impending mortality; the inevitable loss of his kingdom and his crown; and the grisly and catastrophic end of his family, his legacy, and his own life.
