"Allow not nature more than nature needs
Man's life is cheap as beast's"
Often regarded as one of the most supreme products of the human mind, King Lear dazzles us with its power, its range and its artistry. In a world where bitterness and innocence, correction and irresponsibility effortlessly co-exist, this play takes us to the very heart of what it is to be human.
This version by Stephen Unwin was a English Touring Company production in 2002, with Timothy West as Lear.
