The Complete Works of Shakespeare: King Lear
Shakespeare Dallas and AT&T Performing Arts Center are in the midst of presenting staged readings of every single one of Williams Shakespeare's works over five years. The 36th in the series will be King Lear.
Old King Lear, weary of royal duties, proposes to break up his kingdom and divide it among his three daughters. But this rash generosity is cruelly repaid and Lear discovers too late the false values by which he has lived – and, in turn, the suffering common to all humanity.
Performances will take place in the Studio Theatre at the Wyly Theatre. Student tickets for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare are free to students with valid IDs. Student tickets will be available at the door only, one hour before each performance.
