King Lear

By William Shakespeare

“O, that way madness lies.”

King Lear has three daughters. In his advanced age, he plans to divide his kingdom according to which one can say they love him best. But sweet words prove false and set off a violent storm of madness and lies. One of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies provides the ultimate family drama and a riveting portrait of human nature.
