09/22/2019 - Staged Reading: King Lear
Returning to its roots of staged readings, the San Diego Shakespeare Society will present William Shakespeare's tragedy "King Lear" on Sept. 22, 2019, directed by Thomas Haine.In Shakespeare's study of family dynamics, the aging King attempts to divide his kingdom based on how much his daughters profess their love. Things do not go as planned: factions and plotting become evident within families, with siblings, parents, and confidants warring and many searching for hope."It's the greatest of all Shakespeare's plays. A story of pride, estrangement, reconciliation, self-discovery, forgiveness and redemption. It is a testament to the power and endurance of love-a message that speaks comfort to a world filled with anxiety and fear," says director Thomas Haine.

Admission/Cost = $25
