Reading of King Lear

When: Sun., July 9, 7-9 p.m. 2017

KING LEAR may be the most adapted of all Shakespeare’s plays. This version, edited by scholar of Shakespeare and classical drama, Julian Markels, and Guggenheim Fellow James Kincaid seeks to accomplish two goals: to clarify deeply obscure passages, slightly streamlining the play, and to make as striking as possible the shattering historical and tragic message it delivers. This reading will be directed by Risher Reddick and feature a cast of Pittsburgh’s most exciting actors including: Ken Bolden, Lissa Brennan, Jeffrey Carpenter, Tami Dixon, James Fitzgerald, Jessie Goodman, Catherine Gowl, Nancy McGeever, Tim McGeever, Connor McCanlus, and Michael Angelo Turner.
