One event on September 3, 2019 at 7:00 pm

28 Amity Street
Amherst,

Originally broadcast in 2018 from London’s West End, see an encore presentation of Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.

Jonathan Munby directs this ‘nuanced and powerful’ (The Times) contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, KING LEAR sees two aging fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them.

Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Please note that KING LEAR contains strobe lighting.
