Event Description

The Island Shakespeare Festival is presenting King Lear as their 2024 outdoor Shakespeare play. Here’s what they have to say about the production:

A long-time bucket-list production for ISF, we’re thrilled to announce King Lear as our 2024 Shakespeare piece, helmed by returning director Terri McMahon (she/her). Terri directed a beautiful production of Othello at ISF in 2018, and we’re delighted to bring her artistry back to our stage!

King Lear takes center stage in a world where power, patriarchy, and privilege collide with the pursuit of justice and equity. As Lear’s kingdom unravels, his daughters challenge societal expectations, each seeking their own empowerment. Amidst political turmoil, the production delves into the complexities of mental health, offering a poignant reflection on the importance of compassion and empathy in a rapidly changing world. Don’t miss this thought-provoking production, that seeks to resonate with contemporary audiences and spark conversations about the enduring relevance of its themes.

Tickets $15-50
