Thursday, May 1st, 2:00 pm (broadcast LIVE from London)
'The cast is beyond superlative. A literally awe-inspiring production.'
'Sam Mendes and Simon Russell Beale's production is worth the wait.'
Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, Revolutionary Road, American Beauty) returns to the National Theatre to direct Simon Russell Beale (Timon of Athens, Collaborators) in the title role of Shakespeare's tragedy. An aged king decides to divide his kingdom between his three daughters, according to which of them is most eloquent in praising him. When his favorite, Cordelia, says nothing, Lear's world descends into chaos. This highly anticipated production of the great tragedy is Mendes' and Beale's seventh Shakespearean collaboration since 1990.
