By William Shakespeare
Directed by Sam Mendes

This screening was recorded from an earlier live performance.

An aged king decides to divide his kingdom between his three daughters, according to which is most eloquent in praising him. His favorite, Cordelia, says nothing. Lear’s world descends into chaos.

Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (The Bridge Project, BAM 2009—2013) returns to the National Theatre to direct Simon Russell Beale (Timon of Athens, Collaborators) in the title role of Shakespeare’s tragedy.
