Derby Shakespeare Theatre Company presents

King Lear

by William Shakespeare
The Guildhall Theatre, Market Place, Derby
Tuesday 8th - Saturday 12th November 2016

"I might have saved her; now she's gone forever."

A Catholic asylum. 1963. A patient attempts to process their grief; the denial, the anger, the darkness. Will transference lead to acceptance? Can peopling this world with princes and dukes ease the pain? Can reliving the story of King Lear bring comfort? Derby Shakespeare Theatre Company presents Shakespeare's timeless tragedy.

Tickets are available from Derby Live:
