The Porters of Hellsgate Present: King Lear
January 4th, 2013 marks the opening of The Porters of Hellsgate's seventh
season as they dive headlong into Shakespeare's seminal tragedy, King Lear.
Militaristic in style, and set against an industrial, barren landscape, the Porters
explore the destruction of family by greed and ambition, and blindness in the face of

King Lear has divided his kingdom among his three daughters. Deceived by
age and pride, he banishes his youngest daughter, blind to her devotion and the
greed and cruelty of his two eldest. Lear is cast out by his eldest daughters into a
raging storm and forced to keep company with fools and madmen, while
Gloucester's bastard son Edmund schemes against his half-brother Edgar. Tension
mounts as sanity is lost, sight is taken, and war breaks out for control of the
kingdom in the Bard's stunning meditation on aging, family, and hysteria.
