Special Events

by William Shakespeare
Performed by Actors From the London Stage

The Theater Department at Occidental College, through the support of the G. William Hume Fellowship in the Performing Arts, is pleased to present Actors From The London Stage in a performance of Shakespeare’s King Lear on Friday, March 1 at 7:30pm in Keck Theater.

Five actors, hailing from such prestigious companies as the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre of Great Britain, and Shakespeare’s Globe Theater, breathe new life into Shakespeare’s work. Each of the five actors takes on two or three major roles and several minor ones, sharing together the director’s role. In this production, Tricia Kelly takes on the title role of the proud and tempestuous Lear. Seeking to divide his kingdom between his three daughters, Lear offers the largest share to the one who loves him best. He succumbs to flattery rather than truth, and ultimately finds himself an outcast.
