By William Shakespeare
Directed by Tom Prewitt
NOW PLAYING to June 25, 2017
Gunston Arts Center, Theatre Two
An epic parent-child drama and then some. Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy begins as fairy tale (“Once upon a time there was an old king who had three daughters…”) and ends in nightmare—of homelessness, alienation, family strife, and civil war. Starring local acting legend Rick Foucheux as Lear. Also starring Acting Company members Sara Barker as Edgar, Frank Britton as Cornwall, Christopher Henley as The Fool, and Cam Magee as Gloucester. A once-in-a-lifetime performance that’s not to be missed.
