Live from the internationally acclaimed Donmar Warehouse:
by William Shakespeare
Mayo Movie World, Castlebar February 3rd at 7.00pm
The Donmar's Artistic Director, Michael Grandage directs Derek Jacobi as King Lear.
"Who is it that can tell me who I am?"
An ageing monarch, a kingdom divided, a child's love rejected, as Lear's world descends into chaos, all that he once believed is brought into question.
One of the greatest works in western literature, King Lear explores the very nature of human existence: love and duty, power and loss, good and evil.
