UMS Presents: RSC Live in HD: Shakespeare’s King Lear

Antony Sher plays King Lear in one of Shakespeare’s most epic and powerful plays. King Lear has ruled for many years. As age begins to overtake him, he decides to divide his kingdom among his children, living out his days without the burden of power. A proud man, he allows vanity to cloud his judgment, believing that he can relinquish the crown, but enjoy the same respect and authority he has always known. Misjudging his children’s loyalty, he soon finds himself stripped of all the trappings of state, wealth, & power that he had taken for granted.
