King Lear

by William Shakespeare

10-20 July 2019 in the open air at Reading Abbey Ruins
Tickets on sale from late May 2019

At the height of the British Empire, the King makes a fateful choice. Disowning the only child that loves him, he is betrayed by the others, leading his kingdom and his mind to crumble into disarray and madness.

This is our 23rd annual Reading Open Air production - a great summer tradition, in the historic setting of Reading Abbey Ruins!
