‘King Lear’ Select Scenes to Stream this Month

Share this article

There’s nothing like some Shakespeare to shake up your evening. Don’t miss the upcoming local stream of King Lear this July 30 at 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM.

Selected scenes from the Bard’s iconic tragedy about inheritance, family dysfunction, and homelessness will be performed by the company of Theater Space in an online production directed by Ana Valdes Lim. Interested audience members need to register to get the Zoom link to view the performance. The show will be broadcast live and not pre-recorded. A Q&A with the cast and creative team will follow the performance.

The play follows the foolish King Lear as he banishes his dutiful daughter, Cordelia, leaving her devious sisters Goneril and Regan to betray him. As the two daughters and their husbands struggle to gain more power and influence, their father goes into exile and begins to descend into madness. Even though Lear eventually realizes Cordelia’s worth, he is helpless against the power-hungry forces around them and the entire family eventually meets their doom.

This is the latest Shakespearean production of Theater Space, a group of volunteer artists longing to make their art known. They previously performed A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Macbeth, a ‘miscast’ version of Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, Othello, Hamlet, and The Merchant of Venice.

Tickets are by donation. Register for a slot HERE or HERE.
