In Shakespeare’s study of family dynamics, the aging King attempts to divide his kingdom based on how much his daughters profess their love. Things do not go as planned: factions and plotting become evident within families, with siblings, parents, and confidants warring and many searching for hope.
“It’s the greatest of all Shakespeare’s plays. A story of pride, estrangement, reconciliation, self-discovery, forgiveness and redemption. It is a testament to the power and endurance of love-a message that speaks comfort to a world filled with anxiety and fear.“Director Thomas Haine
