About this Film

RSC Live: King Lear 2016

ODEON says...
King Lear has ruled for many years. As age begins to overtake him, he decides to divide his kingdom amongst his children, living out his days without the burden of power. Misjudging his children's loyalty and finding himself alone in the wilderness, 'RSC Live: King Lear' sees him left to confront the mistakes of a life that has brought him to this point.

Antony Sher returns to the RSC to play King Lear, one of the greatest parts written by Shakespeare in this, one of Shakespeare's most powerful plays. 

Join us for the epic 'RSC Live: King Lear' on 12 October, broadcast live from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Feel part of the action from your cinema seat.
