MCT finally takes on Shakespeare’s towering tale of love, lies and loss. A story for all time and a story for our time. Aging Lear is determined to save his country from civil war upon his death, but his efforts throw it into corruption and chaos. A chilling story of the pursuit of power at any cost, and the personal saga of a man slowly stripped away – stripped of grandeur, stripped of strength, stripped of loyalty, stripped of beliefs. Is there something left when you have nothing? Directed by Robbie Allen with a stellar cast led by Don Bilotti as King Lear.
