Considered to be one of Shakespeare's greatest plays, the tragedy King Lear portrays some of the darkest aspects of human nature that can be found in literature. The helplessness of the human condition, as we fall prey to our destinies, the injustice and random cruelties practiced by people, suffering and humiliation, the lust for power and the greed for wealth are all depicted in this magnificent play. And through it all, runs the golden thread of love and sacrifice, daughterly affection an ...

Blood, sex, or family. Which is stronger? Aging founder Bill Lear finds out when he divides his tech company between two ungrateful sons. Shakespeare's King Lear gets a modern reboot in this tale of a rich and powerful family turned against itself. Innocence is punished. Deceit is rewarded. As in life... it's impossible for everyone to get what they want. But that doesn't stop Lear's wayward sons from trying.

The History of King Lear is an adaptation by Nahum Tate of William Shakespeare's King Lear. It first appeared in 1681, some seventy-five years after Shakespeare's version, and is believed to have replaced Shakespeare's version on the English stage in whole or in part until 1838. Unlike Shakespeare's tragedy, Tate's play has a happy ending, with Lear regaining his throne, Cordelia marrying Edgar, and Edgar joyfully declaring that "truth and virtue shall at last succeed." Regarded as a tragico ...
