The Strange Bedfellows present Shakespeare's great tragedy of a king who gives away everything he owns and finally comes to understand his heart. King Lear is tired of ruling so he divides up his kingdom to give to his 3 daughters. But first they must tell him how much they love him. When his ears can't distinguish lies from truth and his ego makes him banish his dearest supporters, he descends into madness. As he journeys through the darkness he finally learns wisdom from a blind friend, a fool and a madman.
The Strange Bedfellows is Rockland County's most accomplished Shakespeare troupe, with highly acclaimed past productions of Much Ado About Nothing, The Complete Works of Shakespeare, a psychedelic Midsummer Night's Dream and a Gatsby-inspired Romeo & Juliet. This company is the adult offshoot of The Children's Shakespeare Theatre and all proceeds from their productions go to support the children's programs.
