National Theatre Live Presents "King Lear": See the Best of British Theatre on a Cinema Screen at the Morris Museum
National Theatre Live: King Lear
WHEN: Sunday, March 6, 2022, 2 pm WHERE: Bickford Theatre, 6 Normandy Heights Rd., Morristown TICKETS: General Admission is $25.00. Member tickets are $20.00. Become a Morris Museum Member today.
Captured live from London’s West End in 2018, see Ian McKellen’s "extraordinarily moving portrayal" (Independent) of King Lear in the Bickford Theatre.
Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, Shakespeare’s King Lear sees two aging fathers—one a King, one his courtier—reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.
