This will be an explosive, charged and contemporary retelling of Shakespeare's epic masterpiece in the intimate setting of the Minerva Theatre. (more...)

BWW Review: KING LEAR, Chichester Festival TheatreBWW Review: KING LEAR, Chichester Festival Theatre
by Rona Kelly - Oct 2, 2017

'We that are young Shall never see so much, nor live so long...' 2017 has been dubbed a year of Hamlets (too many, even), with Andrew Scott and Tom Hiddleston both taking on the role.
