2010 Season

King Lear

June 12 – August 15, 2010

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Bart DeLorenzo

An ageing monarch, a kingdom broken and a family lost to love. The blindness of sanity and the clear-eyed vision of fools and lunatics… fathers, sons and daughters, drenched in the storm of life.
