KING LEAR, Featuring John Wright, Kristi Hansen, and Sheldon Elter

The aging King Lear asks his three daughters to prove their love for him, and two greedily profess overwrought affections. Cordelia, the favourite, humbly responds, but Lear is unimpressed. Banishing her, Lear falls into a web of deception and disappointment, eventually leading to his own howling madness.
