About Shakespeare's Globe: King Lear
Live from the iconic Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London comes a raw, stripped-back and thoroughly engaging adaptation of King Lear. We are brought to a seedy world of vagrants dressed in hoodies or anoraks, with beanies or low tilted caps. Dividing opinion amongst the critics, this unique re-imagining of a centuries-old classic has homelessness, statelessness, and loneliness at its very heart.
