King Lear

  • O'Reilly Theatre Denmark Street Great Dublin, County Dublin Ireland (map)

When money and family mix, the results are often disastrous. Just look at King Lear, who decides to divide all of his land between his three daughters, as long as they agree to compete for who loves him the most. What happens next is a whirlwind of jealousy, deceit and murder that sends Lear's family - and his entire kingdom - into chaos. 
After celebrated productions of classic and contemporary masterpieces in the UK and Ireland, C Company brings King Lear to the O'Reilly Theatre. 


Delving into Shakespeare's King Lear, armed with a sense of adventure and spontaneity, C Company brings this portrait of a family in crisis to life. The words may be the same, but nothing else will.
