King Lear

Off Broadway Play - Drama — 

King Lear, Shakespeare's masterpiece, is one of the towering works of world literature.

In no other play is Shakespeare's tragic vision more terrifyingly clear-- and nowhere in his canon does he create a richer or more complex set of characters. When King Lear divides his kingdom among his three daughters, he sets in motion a cascade of violence that sweeps the civilized world to the brink of chaos, and Lear to the edge of madness.

Featuring Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe and Emmy winner Sam Waterston in the title role.

How do you play the role of Goneril without making her seem like a campy villain? Enid Graham, who costars in this production, told TDF Stages in an exclusive interview.
