A modern-dress presentation of Shakespeare's classic drama.
The aging patriarch of a royal family is beginning to show signs of dementia, and it does not bode well for his successors. Two of his daughters manipulate his affection for their own selfish ends. His youngest daughter, whose love for him is the most true, will not flatter him and will consequently be made to suffer. In the wake of his inability or unwillingness to rule as he must, two families will be thrown into turmoil that threatens to tear them apart.
That is the basic plot of King Lear, presented in modern dress for a contemporary audience. What happens to a family when its leader becomes too incapacitated to guide it?
Carl Weintraub portrays Lear. The cast also includes Veronica Maccari, Chineze Enekwechi, Jasmine Ilarde, Jennifer Ashe, Carlo D’Alba, John Ogden, Kelton Jones, Madison Young and Massimo Napoli.
