Description

_The Tragedie of King Lear _

Starring Dennis Krausnick

A test of love is only the beginning of one old man’s journey on the path to Hell. Considered by many to be William Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, Lear is about repercussions of pride and vanity that eventually lead to the fatal destruction of both the great king and all who are of real importance to him. Lear is a metaphorical epic—a story of violence, lust, betrayal, madness, and the predatory side of human nature.

Directed by Thomas Bradac
