This summer, Miracle Theatre presents Shakespeare’s most elemental and passionate play at elemental outdoor venues across Cornwall. King Lear is an exquisitely dark tale about a family squabble that grows out of all proportion, blowing up into a storm of deadly force.
This fresh and fast-paced adaptation of Shakespeare’s text – pared down to its bare essentials – tells a shocking, yet tender, story of ageing and madness, fuelled by ambition and fired by betrayal. Shakespeare loved to weave theatrical magic out of tragedy in a way that is never far from farce, making King Lear ripe for Miracle’s unique treatment!
