King Lear

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Tom Prewitt
May 25 – June 25, 2017
Opening/press night: May 28, 2017

Shakespeare’s mature classic begins as fairy tale (“Once upon a time there was an old king who had three daughters…”) and ends in nightmare—of homelessness, alienation, family strife, and civil war. Tackling the title role in his Avant Bard debut, local acting legend Rick Foucheux brings his considerable experience and skills to bear on one of the most challenging parts in the Shakespeare canon.
