A distorted, inaccurate and entirely unfaithful adaptation of Shakespeare’s King Lear from the point of view of the adult children who turned their backs on their fathers. Lee’s LEAR is an absurdist tragedy about familial piety, despair, and the end of life.

LEAR by Young Jean Lee

Directed by Mike Steele, Lighting Design by Sarah Jean Elliott, Costume Design by Harri Horsley

FEATURING: Mahagany Adair, Hayden Daniel Cox, Zachary Gamble, Sarah Chong Harmer, Valeria Najera Zavala
